Category: Desserts, Chinese

 Ingredients List

  • 4 Fresh Bartlett pears
  • 4 tb Orange honey
  • 4 ts Minced preserved jujubes
  • (Chinese dates)


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.
