Quick Sauteed Cinnamon Pears

Whenever I have a few pears on hand—or pears that just won’t ripen—I love turning them into these cooked pears.

Ingredients 

1

– Pears (any kind will work) – Cinnamon – Unsalted butter  TIP: I have made this with firm unripe pears and also softer ripe ones. The only difference is how long they take to cook!

Cut

2

Dice the pears into about 1/2-inch pieces. (I leave the peel on, but you can peel the pears if you prefer.) Discard the core and stem.

Cook

3

Place a medium skillet over medium heat. Melt the butter (or oil). Stir in the pears. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until soft when poked with a fork.

Cook

4

Cooking time may vary a little depending on how ripe or unripe the pears are. The riper they are, the quicker the cooking time.

Serve

5

Stir in the cinnamon and serve warm or store for later. These can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-5 days.
