Ingredients

  • 1/2
    cup seedless raspberry spreadable fruit
  • 1
    cup apple juice
  • 2
    teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 2
    tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3
    firm Bosc pears, peeled and cut into fourths

Steps

    Mix all ingredients except pears in 10-inch skillet. Add pears.
  • 2
    Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer uncovered about 30 minutes, spooning juice mixture over pears and turning every 10 minutes, until pears are tender. Serve warm or chilled.

  • Firm, slightly under-ripe pears are your best choice for cooking and baking.
  • Anjou pears are a good substitute because they hold up well when cooked.
