Pears make a comforting side dish in this special recipe shared by Margaret Allen of Abingdon, Virginia. "We enjoy this hot fruit with a ham dinner," she says.


  • 6 medium pears, peeled, halved and cored
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup white grape juice
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped toasted almonds
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract


  1. Place pears, cut side down, in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Combine water and grape juice; pour over pears. Cover and bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until tender.
  2. Turn the pears over. Combine almonds, sugar and extract; mix well. Spoon into pear cavities. Bake, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
