Title: Steamed honey pears
Categories: Chinese, Desserts
Yield: 4 Servings
4 Fresh Bartlett pears
4 tb Orange honey
4 ts Minced preserved jujubes
Preparation: Wash pears. Carefully slice off the tip quarter,
leaving the stem intact. Core each pear through to the bottom. Make
four lengthwise cuts from the core outward but not through the skin.
If you have peeled the pears, do not make these cuts. Place pears in
individual bowls, such as rice bowls or dessert dishes. Pack core
with minced dates, add 1 tablespoon of orange honey to each pear.
Replace top quarter. Hold at room temperature until ready to steam.
Steaming: In steamer, bring water to boil. Place pears in their
individual bowls on steaming tray. Steam pears for about 30 minutes,
checking frequently to see they don't overcook and become mushy.
Remove tray from steamer. Allow pears to cool for about 30 minutes.
Serve at room temperature.
