Poached Pears with Raspberry Sauce

Easy peasy and a hit with Simon especially. I usually leave out the date for Jason’s sake.


  • 2 pears
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup frozen red raspberries, thawed
  • 1 teaspoon date sugar or 1 medjool date, pitted


  1. Peel the pears and leave the stems attached. Drizzle with lemon juice.
  2. Microwave for 4 minutes. Do not drain.
  3. Blend raspberries and date sugar or dates in a high powered blender until smooth.
  4. Mix raspberry mixture with cooking liquid.
  5. Top pears with raspberry sauce.
