Purple Pears

Many of my recipes are based upon what's in the larder. Last night I was to attend a gathering where I was to bring a dessert. I wanted something lite, post holiday. So I looked around. I found some pears, some blueberries, and a lemon that I wanted to use, so here's what I came up with:

3 15oz cans pears (in lite syrup) drained

1 cup frozen blueberries (defrosted, and drained)

1 whole lemon for juice

1 Tbs. Cinnamon

1 tsp mint leaf

1/2 tsp stevia

*optional 1/2 cup walnuts

Combine ingredients in a bowl, Pam a baking dish, and place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 1/2 hour. It turns the pears a deep purple, and to me is blueberry pears, as you have the flavor of blueberries with the texture of the pears. It was served warm last night. Today I finished the little amount left cold, and it tasted even better.

I have done something similar with golden delicious apples and frozen blueberries. It turned reddish, and went over well with family when served as a cobbler with a topping of shortcake. I heated the fruit with some cinnamon and brown sugar until bubbly in the oven, then added the sweet biscuit crust. A nice alternative to pie!
