Description

A simple fall treat, Pear and Ricotta Parfaits with Rosemary-infused Honey combine wonderful flavors to celebrate the season. The rosemary-infused honey used in this recipe is from Martha Stewart.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Plain Honey (for The Rosemary-infusion)
  • 4 whole Rosemary Sprigs
  • 2 whole Firm Pears
  • 3 cups Water
  • ¼ cups Plain Honey (for Poaching The Pears)
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 6 ounces, weight Ricotta Cheese
  • 4 ounces, fluid Plain Granola
  • 2 ounces, fluid Roasted, Unsalted Pepitas (or Pumpkin Seeds)

Preparation

For the rosemary-infused honey:
The rosemary-infused honey used in this dessert is a Martha Stewart recipe. Martha Stewart notes that the honey can be stored in an airtight container with a lid for up to 1 week.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring plain honey and rosemary to a simmer, cooking for about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let the rosemary steep in the mixture until it’s cool.

Remove the rosemary and store the honey in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

For the parfaits:
Poach the sliced pears by putting them in a saucepan over low heat with the water, plain honey, and lemon juice. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until they’re tender. Use a spoon to flip the pears over a few times as they cook.

Use a slotted spoon to remove them from the water. Discard the water. When cool, dice the pears.

Begin by putting a thin layer of ricotta in the bottom of a dessert glass. Add a layer of diced pears, then drizzle on a bit of the rosemary-infused honey.

Sprinkle on a layer of granola mixed with the pepitas. Repeat the layers once more. Garnish with a few diced pears and another drizzle of honey over the top.
