IF - Sugary

mmmmmmmmm.......pears for a Cucu treat!
(Cucu - Grandmother in Swahili)

Cucu's Pears

3 pears
1 pineapple
1 orange, squeezed
1 lemon, squeezed
4 skewers

Peel the pears, cut them into sixes and drizzle them with lemon juice so that they don't go brown.

Peel and chop the pineapple into quarters and remove the centre. Cut each quarter lengthways into 5 pieces.

Melt some butter in a pan and brown the fruit a little, sprinkling regularly with sugar.

Pour the orange juice over the fruit and stir gently.

Add a good dollop of honey and mix as it melts.

Once cool, skewer the fruit, alternating the pear and pineapple.

Drizzle the honey and orange mixture from the pan over the skewers and serve.
