Watch this video and learn to make a stunning dessert with a pear, some cranberries, water, sugar and spices - all in about a minute and a half!
Here is the recipe:
4 pears, peeled, halved, cored
1 cup cranberries
1 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup Splenda (use brown sugar as a substitute)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Place all in microwave container and cover and cook on full power for 6 minutes. Pears are done when tender. Serve warm on a plate - as shown - or cover and refrigerate for later use.
Citrus Pummelo Cup
Here is the recipe for the Citrus Pummelo Cup:
1 large pummelo or grapefruit
1 tsp warm honey (we warmed it briefly in the microwave)
zest and juice of 1 lime
segments of 1 tangerine
Peel, core and deseed pummelo or grapefruit as shown in the video. Cut into segments and remove seeds and core again as needed. Stack the segments on a plate.
Drizzle with warm honey, lime zest and juice. Garnish with tangerine segments. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Serve in glasses or dessert dishes.
The pummello is a fruit that resembles a grapefruit - we have found them to be somewhat of a conversation piece - they are very large! They are juicy and very sweet - we liken them to grapefruit candy!
We made this recipe using Ambrosia Apples - the title of those gave us the idea. The pineapple is tasty and the acid in it keeps the apples white for a few days!
Victoria Shanta Retelny, RD, LDN, exclaimed, "The videos look great, Judy. They are so sleek and simple. I love it! I am going to make the apple ambrosia tonight with my kids" when she got to preview our videos (our authors do have priveleges).
We love this dessert, too!
2 apples, cored and diced
1/4 cup crushed pineapple in juice, with juice
1 cup light nonfat vanilla yogurt
1 squirt of whipped cream - about 2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon toasted almonds, chopped
Mix all together. Cover and chill until ready to use. Serve in glass bowl and top with more crushed pineapple and toasted almonds. MMMMMMMMMMMMM!
