Pear Puree Ingredients – 1/4 cup honey ~ 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (bottled juice is fine) ~ 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter, melted ~ 6 Bosc pears, peeled, quartered, cored (I cubed mine but larger quarters are fine)
Directions: Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Combine honey, lemon juice, and melted butter in large bowl. Add pears; toss to coat. Arrange pears in single layer on large rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast pears 30 minutes. Turn pears to coat with juices and roast until very tender, about 35 minutes longer. Transfer pears and caramelized liquids to food processor; blend until smooth. (Pear puree can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
Now I wouldn’t necessary make this on a weekly basis but if I was looking to impress someone I would make this recipe!! I felt like I was a contestant on the Iron Chef once it was done.
If you’re not a fan of pork this would still be great with chicken. Since the pear puree can be made in advance you can use it on multiple dishes, add it on top of veggies, use as a relish on a burger, or mix it with salsa and garnish a steak.
Can you see yourself making this dish?
What would you do with the leftover pear puree?
