Pizza or sheet pan
Extra HOT oven preheated to 550

Harvest Ingredients
2 pears
2 apples
1 lime

Other Ingredients
1/3 cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
2 ~ 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, organic preferred
¼ cup port wine, or red grape juice
Favorite ice cream
Date molasses, optional


Step 1: Cut the apples & pears in half and use a melon baller to remove the core.  Sprinkle the cut sides w/ sugar & cinnamon.  I used a mix of sucanat, brown sugar & organic cane sugar mixed w/ the cinnamon.  Dot each core w/ a knob of unsalted butter & turn cut side down.  

Step 2: Zest the lime, set the zest aside & put the lime cut side down on the pizza pan with the fruit. Add the port wine or red grape juice.  Put into the oven & set a timer for 15 mins.  Get the ice cream out of the freezer to soften.  

Step 3: When the timer goes off, remove the pan from the oven, and turn the fruits over into a serving dish.  Spoon over the sauce from the pan, squeeze the lime over the fruit and top w/ the zest.  Plate with the ice cream, blackberries (I cut some in half, leave some whole) and drizzle w/ the date molasses if using.  




You’ll look forward to getting whole fruit in your Hungry Harvest box from now on.  This amazing dessert is relatively low fat and sugar, so full of citrus flavored fresh fruit.  The cinnamon sings.  The cool berries, cold ice cream & hot fruit are fantastic.  I don’t peel the organic fruit, but do so if you’d like.
