I was fortunate to receive a lovely birthday present this year - an order of fruit. I have received two of the boxes of fruit in the last two weeks and both boxes have contained pears....so....here are some recipes!!

Pear Waldorf Salad
3 Royal Riviera Pears, cored and sliced or diced (these are the best pears I've ever tasted!)
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 cup sliced celery
granola cereal
1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
head lettuce (torn)

Gently toss pears in lemon juice. Arrange pears, celery and cereal on bed of lettuce. Spoon yogurt over individual servings. Serves 6

Bosc Pears in Caramel Baskets (no calories here!!!)
4 Royal Beurre Bosc Pears, fully ripened
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons water

1 cup sugar
cooking spray

1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons heavy cream
3 tablespoons sweet, unsalted butter
3 tablespoons pear brandy (optional)

To make baskets, press and smooth aluminum foil around 4 large custard cups. Spray lightly with cooking spray.

In heavy saucepan heat 1 cup sugar over low-medium heat until liquid. Remove immediately from heat and drizzle with spoon over foil-covered cups. Cool til hard. Remove baskets (carefully) from foil and put on plates or bowls.

Heat second cup of sugar til liquid. Remove from heat and carefully add cream and butter. Return to heat and stir til smooth. Add brandy. Remove from heat and cool to desired consistency.

Peel pears and sprinkly with water and lemon juice to keep from browning. Place a pear in each basket and drizzle with caramel sauce. Enjoy!

Add more recipes if ya got em! :)
