Steamed Pandarian Pear






Here are a few ideas I have for new cooking recipes in the new expansion - Mists of Pandaria!


You will need:

2 Asian pears (or Bartlett)
4 teaspoons honey
Raisins
Lemon juice to brush on the pears to prevent discoloration (optional)

1 1/2 C water for the steamer.




Wash the pears and pat dry with paper towels.




Cut the top off the pears and set aside (these will become the lid). 
 Remove the core.
 If desired, cut off a small slice at the bottom so that the pear will stand straight during steaming.




Spoon 2 teaspoons honey into each pear.




 Add raisins.
 Place the top back on the pear. Brush the lemon juice over the skin of the pear if using.




Set up a steamer, or place a rack for steaming inside a deep pot.
Add 1 1/2 C water. Don't let the water touch the fruit.
Put pot on medium heat for 30 minutes or until tender.
Check with a fork.




(Don't have a steamer? How about the quote,"Necessity is the mother of all inventions." - Plato)
Here is my invention:

I used a pot and a trivet, (the metal rack you place a hot pan on.)




Place the pears on a plate and steam, covered, for 30 minutes, or until the pears are tender.
Don't check the pears until after the 30 minutes are up. You don't want to let the steam out.




Serve warm. Yum!

  4. They were so good! The honey is absorbed into the pear and the raisins.
