Throughout the fall, we work closely with a variety of Washington organic growers to pick the freshest, tree-ripened pears.

Ingredients

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350º F.

Wash pears, do not peel and do not remove stems. Cut lengthwise. With a teaspoon, scoop out just the pith and seeds. If preferred, the 12 halves can be sliced again lengthwise, for 24 quartered pieces. Arrange pears, cut sides up in a rectangular baking dish.

Grate unpeeled ginger root onto a plate. Gather grated ginger, squeeze over pears and then scatter. Pour cider over pears, until they are nearly covered.

Cover the pan with foil and bake for one hour. Remove and let cool. Serve at room temperature. If you like, whip cream to soft peaks and serve a dollop alongside the pears.

Notes
