Earl Grey poached pears with dried cranberries
Gluten Free, Dairy Free
30 - 40 Minutes
Of course you’ll have pie for Thanksgiving, but it’s nice to have a lighter, gluten-free option especially after a heavy meal. These poached pears are ideal for that. They can be made up to a week ahead and refrigerated in their poaching liquid. You can serve them chilled or reheat them gently.
