Poached Raspberry Pears
1/2 cup seedless raspberry spreadable fruit
1 cup apple juice
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 firm Bosc pears -- peeled and cut into
Bosc pears are perfect here as they hold up well to cooking; firm Anjous can also be used. Apricot spreadable fruit would make a nice flavor and color variation in place of the raspberry. Mix all ingredients except pears in 10-inch skillet. Add pears. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer uncovered 30 minutes, spooning juice mixture over pears and turning every 10 minutes, until pears are tender. Serve warm or chilled. 6 servings
