Pears With Rosemary Sugar

You probably have all of the ingredients for this dessert in your refrigerator and pantry: pears, oranges, fresh rosemary, and some sugar. In other words, this is the ideal dessert to whip up in a pinch. And it’s easy to double if you’re serving a crowd. To prevent the rosemary from browning quickly, you’ll want to avoid crushing it. Make sure your knife is sharp, and focus on slicing through it (versus pressing down on it). Sprinkle the sugar on the pears just like you would season with salt: hold your hand high and move it back and forth so the sugar falls in an even layer.
