Blushing Pears

Here is a simple dessert/snack recipe

Pears: 2, pealed with the stem intact
Apple or cranberry cocktail: 150 ml
honey: 1 tbsp (skip if your child is under 1 year)
Cinnamon stick: 1 inch
Bay leaf: 1 small

Peel the pears. In a deep dish, add everything except pears and stir until honey mixes with juice (about a minute). Gently place the pears in pot and pour water until water barely covers the pears (almost submerge but quite). In medium flame, cook until pears are soft. It will take about 20 minutes. 

With a slotted ladle, take the pears out and place in a serving bowl. return the liquid to flame and boil in high flame until the liquid reduces to 1/2 to 1/4. Pour on the pears in the serving bowl and chill. 

Serve as snack.

Our Adult version: 
Substitute juice with rose wine and honey with 2 tbsp of sugar.
