4 pears, peeled and quartered 600 g
4 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup honey, liquid 90 g
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon 0.4 g
1/3 cup cranberries 35 g


  1. Peel and core the pears, then cut each into 4 wedges. Toss them with the lemon juice to avoid darkening.
  2. Add the honey to a saucepan or skillet which will be large enough to contain the pear quarters in one layer without overlapping. Add the cinnamon, stir, bring to a boil, then lower the heat and cook 2 min, until the honey starts to caramelize.
  3. Add the pears, cover and cook over low heat 10-12 min, with occasional stirring, until the pears are translucent and start to soften. Add the cranberries and cook 4-5 min until they burst and the pears are soft but not falling apart.
  4. Take the pan off the heat and let the pears cool down about 30 min. Serve lukewarm or at room temperature.
