caramel pears w/ sea salt

Caramel Pears by freshnewengland #Pears #Caramel

Sometimes you have to let things go, 
simply because they are heavy.

Enjoy your weekend.


This weekend I'm going to make these:
Caramel Pears

8-10 ripe pears, washed, dried, chilled 
372 grams sugar (about 2 cups)
186 grams dark brown sugar (about 1 cup)
150 grams butter (about 2/3 cup)

2/3 cup corn syrup 
1 cup cream
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 tsp. real vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients together (except the fruit) in a deep saucepan. Cook over medium high heat until the butter melts and temperature on a candy or laser thermometer reaches 246 degrees (119 celcius). Stir constantly toward the end of the cooking period to prevent scorching. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Dip fruit into caramel mixture and twist until evenly covered. Roll in nuts, sugar or sea salt. Drain on waxed paper or a silicone baking sheet. Refrigerate. Consume pears within a few hours. Leftover caramel can be refrigerated


  1. Thats true. I had to go and cry yesterday and let the burdon of my husbands sex addiction go. Its a great feeling

  2. Thanks Scabs! Love you girl...I appreciate this. I need to let go! Darn it's hard, but I've got to!

    Those pears look absolutely divine:)
