Baked pears with oranges, raisins, and a brown sugar syrup. Scroll down to see more recipes using pears.


  • 6 ripe but firm pears
  • 2 medium navel oranges, unpeeled, sliced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup water
  • dash salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter


Cut a thin slice off bottom of each pear so they will stand up. Place pears, orange slices, and raisins in a 3-quart baking dish. Combine brown sugar, water, and salt; pour over the fruits, covering orange slices well. Dot with butter. Bake, covered, at 325°, for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, basting fruit occasionally. Serve warm. Serves 6 to 8.
