Ingredients

Directions

  1. To start, preheat oven to 400°F, and lightly butter or grease a baking pan or skillet. Set aside. Cut your pears in half length-wise and scoop out the seeds with a little spoon. Place the pears facedown on top of the baking pan. Bake the pears for 5-10 minutes, just until the pears start to get soft.
  2. Next, remove the pears from the oven. In a small bowl, combine the Black Currant fruit spread, lemon juice and maple syrup, mix well. Coat the face of the pear with the black currant mixture and place the pears back in the oven. Continue to bake the pears in the oven face-down for an additional 5-10 minutes. Until the pears begin to get a nice soft caramelization on them and become soft to the touch. If the pears aren’t caramelizing, then try flipping them over and set your oven to broil for a minute or two.
  3. Pair these baked pears with a scoop of ricotta cheese or a spoonful of yogurt for a delicious and healthy way to kick off your day! Enjoy.
