Chef's Tips

  • If you use canned pears instead of fresh pears, drain but reserve ½ cup of juice and omit apple juice. Cut down cooking time in step 3 to about 15 minutes.
  • Pears are very similar to apples so if there is a recipe that calls for pears and you don’t have them, you can use apples instead.
