I was left with an unexpected bunch of very beautiful, yellow pears. I served some with ripe Camembert last night as an after dinner accent -to my horror and disappointment when cut they turned out to be late-in-delivery, brownish centres, obvious demonstration of waiting too long to be eaten..
So – this morning we had a fantastic treat – good enough to be consumed without a chance for picture taking and stuff. Next time!
For 2 people i used
- 2 beautiful large pears (ripe, yellow Bartlett),
- 2 heaping spoonfuls of ground hazelnut,
- 5 heaping spoonfuls of 3% plain yogourt.
I peeled the pears, gently – when ripe they tend to release a lot of juice and and are slippery, difficult to handle. Dropped the halves/quarters into a stand-up blender (most popular with cocktail makers and soup blenders..)
I dropped the hazelnuts and yogourt on them – and started the noisy machine30 seconds later i had a wonderful, thick blend, thin enough to pour into g;asses, or thick enough to eat with a spoon (we ended up drinking first, then cleaning up the rest with spoons, too good to leave and leftovers..).
I will try with different fruit and different nuts. maybe even peanut butter, of i have some left behind – not often, but it does happen, when i am willing to make some for cooking purposes (e.g. for Nam Satay sauce). So..
