1
tablespoon honey
1/2
cup water

Directions

  • 1 In 3-quart saucepan, mix pears, apples, lemon juice and honey until well combined. Stir in water.
  • 2 Cover; heat to boiling over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes.

Expert Tips

Too determine if an Anjou pear is ripe, press gently at the top of the pear near the stem. If it yields and springs back, it’s ready to eat.

Cut the apples last so that they have the least chance of browning.
