Cinnamon Honey Glazed Pears

I’m a big believer in eating with the seasons and given that Fall officially begins this Friday, what better way to start off the school year than with some beautiful, baked pears.

If you’re a green smoothie or cold-drink-in-the-morning person, now is the time to switch gears.

According to Chinese medicine, fall is associated with dryness and lung health. The wind associated with the fall season (and especially the Santa Ana winds we have here in California) can irritate the lungs and sinuses, making them vulnerable to pathogens.

Private Yoga Instructor Los Angeles Santa Monica Brentwood Pacific Palisades Bel Air Venice Marina del ReyBaked, poached or stewed pears are considered a cooling, moistening food in Chinese medicine, and are a perfect way to make medicine out of your meals!

This is an easy recipe with ingredients that many people may already have in their kitchen.

CINNAMON HONEY GLAZED PEARS (serves 4-6)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 Bosc pears
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 3 TBS water
  • 1 TBS butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch each of cinnamon, clove, ginger
  • 1 cinnamon stick (optional)
  • dollop greek-style yogurt (I like Siggi’s)

Cinnamon Honey Glazed Pears Private Yoga Instructor Los Angeles Santa Monica Brentwood Pacific Palisades Bel Air Venice Marina del ReyDIRECTIONS:

Peel the pears and cut length-wise into halves. Scoop out the seeds and place cut side down in an 8 x 8 baking dish.

Melt remaining ingredients over low heat and pour over pears.

Bake covered at 400 F for 40-45 minutes, basting pears with liquid at 15 minute intervals, or until pears are tender when poked. Take care when removing cover for basting as there will be a lot of steam.

Serve warm with yogurt (I like Siggi’s Coconut)
