Pears and Raspberries with Lemon Creme Syrup

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

These raspberries are from our former garden in Vancouver, the kids were kind enough to pick and bring them on their last visit. Until we get some canes planted, we will have to rely on the generosity of family and friends.

The pears are from our favorite organic co-op and were just right to be put out for our dessert this evening. I know that pears and raspberries go splendid together, I have noticed many recipes for baked desserts pairing raspberries and pears.

After working all day, we really prefer a lighter offering for dessert. This fruit platter was perfect! The lemon creme syrup is a bit more than you need, it works out great that it keeps in your refrigerator waiting for the next fruit platter you might wish to serve. I think the combinations you will enjoy are endless.

Pears and Raspberries with Lemon Creme Syrup

by the seat of my pants!

2 pears
1-2 c fresh raspberries
1 lemon
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c yogurt or sour cream (we used yogurt)

Juice your lemon, measure the juice. You will need 1/4 cup. Combine the lemon juice, and sugar, stir well to dissolve the sugar. Whisk in the yogurt.

Cut the pear into wedges and arrange on a large platter. Scatter the raspberries over the top. Drizzle the syrup lightly over the fruit. Offer addition syrup to those wanting more!
