  • 2 pears, peeled and cored
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  1. Cut each pear into 8 wedges. Toss the pears and the lemon juice in a non-reactive medium bowl, and set aside.

  2. Melt the unsalted butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the pears and about 1/2 cup water. Sprinkle with the sugar. Simmer until the water has evaporated and the pears turn golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Serve warm with hot cereal.
