Core Spiced Pears with Berries (+1.5pts)

Pictured served on Steel Cut Oats
This recipe is so simple and so tasty as a desert or breakfast.

It has 1 1/2 TB of sugar (1.5 pt) in the whole recipe, so nonCore Points are minimal per serve.
Serves: 4-6

Difficulty: Very Easy

  • 1/2 a 1kg jar of Pears in Cranberry Juice (Goulburn Valley), drained
  • 1/2 - 1 cup frozen berries
  • * 1 1/2 TB sugar (1.5 pts)
  • mixed spice
  • ground black pepper (yes I am serious), about 1/4 tsp

The sugar coats the fruit while it cooks, like a glaze. I do not recommend swapping for Splenda. Sugar is only 1.5 pts to share between 4-6 serves.

Arrange the pears in the bottom of a small casserole
Top with the berries (no need to defrost)
Sprinkle with the mixed spice, sugar and pepper
Cook covered with foil for 25 mins at 180*C.
Serve with a spoonful of the richly coloured juices
