Spiced Pears & Pomegranate

 

2 Cups Pomegranate Juice

2 Tablespoons dark born sugar¼ teaspoon allspice

4 Pears

1Tablespoon Butter

½ cups pomegranate seeds

1 Bunch of Fresh Mint

In a large saucepan with lid, combine juice, brown sugar, allspice and butter. Cook over medium heat and stir until the brown sugar is melted. Peel your pears, leaving the stems on! Cut about ¼ inch across the bottom of each pear so they’ll stand up straight on your serving plate. Place each pear in the sauce on their sides and cover for about 25 minutes on medium heat. Turn the pears every so often while cooking so they’ll cook evenly through.

Once the pears are tender, transfer them from the large saucepan to a pretty platter. Continue cooking the sauce over a high heat for 15 minutes until the liquid is reduced to1 cup/ Drizzle the sauce over the pears just before serving time and garnish the place with fresh pomegranate seeds and a few sprigs of mint.

Pomegranates are a superfood, so get eating them while they’re in season. It is said that they are packed with antioxidants that help lower cholesterol and they can reduce the risk of heart disease. The name of the antioxidant found in this fruit is Polyphenols, which are also found in Concord grapes, red wine, artichokes, parsley, strawberries and tea.
