Pear-peach, oven baked

A few days ago I had an irresistible urge for some kind of refreshing, low-sugar, fruit-based dessert, which obviously had to be homemade!

 I could not quite pinpoint what I needed to make or to bake, but ideas from various food blogs and books kept bubbling in my head while I went to the market. This is what I came up with – partly-improvised, cooked pears & peach, with honey and cinnamon. The result was absolutely satisfying to my nagging urge for a healthy dessert!

Ingredients:

  • Small, not-too-ripe, pear and peach, 3 each –  all peeled, cored, and sliced.
  • Honey, 1 tbsp.
  • Fresh lime juice, 1 tbsp.
  • Cinnamon, ½ tea spoon.
  • Butter, ½ tea spoon.

Method:  Mix honey and lime juice and toss pears and peaches with the mix in a bowl. Place butter in an oven-safe dish and preheat it in oven for five minutes. Now, transfer the fruit slices to the oven-safe dish; sprinkle cinnamon between layers.  Cover the lid and cook at low temperature (250 F) for about an hour. half way through baking, take the dish out and give it a good shake.

Let it cool a bit before arranging the slices in a serving platter. Top it with the produced juice. It will taste, smell and feel tender and wonderful!
