Bae Sook ( Cooked Pears With Peppercorns)-Korean Dessert

Cooked asian pears with peppercorns, seems quite different na?? even i thought how they tastes,i really want to give a trial to this easy n different dessert from Korea coz i never had korean foods till i tried this dessert, which pulled me to give a try to this korean dessert also..I found this dessert recipe here, u may see this dessert recipe under dessert label...as i recently bought asian pears in chinese store,i immediately got hooked to this dessert.. Asian pears are crispy n juicy fruit, they remains unchanged after picking or storage..There are three types of Asian pear: round or flat fruit with green to yellow skin; round or flat fruit with bronze-colored skin and a light bronze-russet; and pear-shaped fruit with green or russet skin. U can find this asian pears very easily in chinese stores...These asian pears contain about 16 percent carbohydrate and negligible amounts of fat and protein. They are good sources of the B-complex vitamins and also contain vitamin C; in addition, they contain small amounts of phosphorus and iodine.
This simple dessert goes to AWED-Korean guest hosted by PJ of Seduce Your Tastebuds, event started by DK of Culinary Bazaar..The original recipe need 4 cups of water n pinenuts, i skipped the pine nuts n reduced the cups of water coz of my asian pears as they were slightly ripened..As i used peppercorns, its goes to Think Spice- Think Peppers guest hosted by Divya of Dilse, Event started by Sunita ..


2 Asian pears
20 peppercorns
2 tablespoons sugar
2cups water

Peel and core the pears, cut them as quarters n round the edges of the pears, keep aside...Now combine the water, sugar n pears in a pan n bring them to boil..put in simmer and cook for 5 minutes..let them cool in fridge..

Serve them in a small bowl with 2 r 3 pears... Enjoy this delicious slightly spicy pears!!!
