ASIAN PEARS DESSERT

ASIAN PEARS DESSERT

 

FRIED ASIAN PEARS

What is your "go-to quick and easy spur-of-the-moment" dessert when your sweet tooth takes over your will power and you just have to have something that would satisfy your sweet cravings? Mine is fried fruit. It's easy-peel, cut and fry. It's quick, only takes a couple of minutes to make start to finish. And it requires zero planning (well, except purchase of the said fruit, that is) and you can literally make it any time you are in the mood for dessert. Unexpected family visit, neighbors stopping by, kids whining they want something sweet, husband wondering if there is any treat laying around in the fridge - just whip out your frying pan and voila! Fresh, delicious, yummy and nutritious dessert you won't feel guilty about serving to your loved ones or enjoying yourself.
I prefer asian pears because they are firm, crisp, juicy, sweet and hold their shape well when cooked. They actually become sweeter and juicier when heat treated. They have a low glycemic index that will not raise your blood glucose quickly. Asian pears are rich in fiber, potassium, copper and vitamins K and C.
This is definitely out-of-the-box recipe that will surprise your loved ones and hopefully will encourage them to have a new look at unique and unconventional produce at your grocery store. It certainly worked on my kids.
You can absolutely have them on their own or combine with my gluten-sugar-dairy-free waffles or pancakes.
I do not add any liquor to this recipe because I am a responsible parent 🙂 But if you are only serving these to adults that don't mind to partake in some alcohol consumption then by all means, add a tablespoon (or two) of grand marnier to a mixing bowl with vanilla extract and lemon juice before giving your pears a shower full of amazing flavor.
