Vanilla Cinnamon Asian Pears
1/4 cup vanilla sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon homemade vanilla
2 ripe Asian pears, peeled and chopped
splash of Riesling
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Place the butter, wine, sugar and pears into a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Stir to combine and then sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook on medium until soft.
Cook for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and add the vanilla.
This recipe would also go well with apples. Depending upon the variety you would need to extend the cooking time. This recipe is a little too sugary and strong for me to eat on it’s own but it goes great over oatmeal or yogurt.
