Ginger & Sage Pears


These pears, theeeeeeeeese pears. They will make you want to grab your own pair in delight (whether balls or breasts, a celebratory grab will be in order). They are positively delicious. They go beautifully with meat, especially pork and chicken. A little butter is integral to the well-rounded flavour, so you will have to forgive and embrace this indiscretion, besides, most of it stays in the pan anyway. These cooked beauties are winners. Get on it.


– 2 pears, cut in half lengthways, with seeds removed

– 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage

– 1 teaspoon finely chopped (or minced) ginger

– 2 teaspoons butter

– 2 teaspoons coconut oil (or just use more butter or whatever oil but coconut lends a beautiful flavour to the pears)

How to get pair-grabbing-worthy pears:

– melt the butter over a low heat in a little frypan

– add in the coconut oil

– throw in the ginger and sage and give it a quick stir

– place your halved pears into the frypan and place the lid on, so they steam as well as fry

– these babies will take around 30 minutes to cook, depending on the ripeness of the fruit. Turn them regularly so they cook evenly and don’t burn

– good golly, they’re good, so get them on your plate and chow them down ASAP

You will heart these pears,
