- 2 pears, peeled and cored
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons sugar
Cut each pear into 8 wedges. Toss the pears and the lemon juice in a non-reactive medium bowl, and set aside.
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.
