Fresh Salted Pears with Yogurt Cheese

I’ll admit this. If I didn’t know any better this wouldn’t sound like something that interests me but trust me when I say, this is so tasty! And, as a general rule, I don’t even love pears…or yogurt! There’s something about the sweetness of the pears together with the silky-smooth, tart yogurt and sprinkle of salt (don’t leave off the salt!) that is so great together. This idea comes from a treat my grandmother used to give me when I was a kid – canned pear halves with cream cheese and grated cheddar cheese on top. I loved it and I love this. So do my kids!

 

This is the time of year for pears (Fall). They’re in season and even the organic ones can be a better price than other times of the year. There are so many kinds of pears. Just pick the ones you like best for this treat!

You’ll want to use a good, unrefined sea salt. Not white table salt. Real Salt and Celtic Sea Salt are two brands we like and are easy to find at most grocery stores. This type of salt is what you need to have in your kitchen for all your salt needs.

These are wonderful with breakfast or for a snack. I have even served them on a platter to guests at brunch.

See our simple tutorial for how to make yogurt cheese (and some good ways to use it).

ingredients

  • -fresh pears – any variety you like
  • -homemade yogurt cheese
  • -sea salt

instructions

  1. Prepare as many pears as you’ll eat right away by cutting them in half, length-wise, and scooping out the seeds/core with a little spoon or melon baller. You can peel them if you like but remember, there’s a lot of nutrition in the skin! (P.S. You don’t want to prepare pears very much ahead of time because they will turn brown. They’ll still taste fine, but won’t look too appetizing).
  2. Pile up or spread some homemade yogurt cheese ? link on each half. To make them look prettier you could pipe the yogurt cheese on with a pastry bag and a tip.
  3. Sprinkle a tiny pinch of salt on each pear.
  4. Enjoy!
