Quick Poached Pears - Strawberry CreekFrom the Strawberry Creek Inn in Idyllwild, CA comes this delicious brunch idea for poached pears!

Quick-Poached Pears


1/2 fresh pear, peeled, cored, cut lengthwise
Fruit juice (enough to barely cover pears)
Champagne (optional)
Cinnamon for sprinkling
1 Tbsp plain (or flavored) yogurt (“Mom” prefers organic Greek yogurt)
1 tsp granola
Raspberries or blueberries for garnish


Soak pear(s) in fruit juice/champagne, 1 hour to overnight. Place each pear in a small dish, with a little of the fruit juice mixture.

Right before serving, place in microwave oven on high for 30 seconds (for each pear). Sprinkle with cinnamon. Spoon (or pipe with a star tip) yogurt on pear (in the indentation where the seeds have been scooped out)

Sprinkle with granola, (peanut butter granola works well) place a raspberry or blueberry on top of yogurt for garnish and serve immediately.
