1 ripe pear (any variety), peeled and diced into 1/4″ – 1/2″ pieces
12 – 15 strawberries, hulled and quartered
2 tablespoons strawberry jam
Coconut whipped cream: This step-by-step method from “Oh She Glows” is fantastic; the can of coconut milk needs to sit in the fridge overnight though, so plan accordingly!
Add the diced pear, strawberry pieces, and jam to a small-medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, and cook until the mixture becomes homogeneous and jam like (about 20 – 25 minutes, there is much room for tinkering here). If you think it’s simmering too ferociously, lower the heat to med-low. Cool completely.
You can serve this one of two ways:
1) Add some whipped cream to a bowl and stir in the cooked fruit mixture, creating a lovely swirly/creamy/fruity concoction. OR
2) Layer the two parts in small cups or dishes to show them off.
