Multigrain pear bircher muesli

As finger-licking good as a jam doughnut but with fresh fruit, lots of grains, creamy yoghurt and the lush, velvety goodness of pear juice.

Serves 4
For the muesli
60g jumbo rolled oats
60g barley flakes
60g rye flakes
450ml pear juice, organic if available

For the topping
140g fresh pear
100g fresh blueberries
140g Greek yoghurt

1 Begin the day before you want to eat the muesli. Stir together the oats, barley and rye in a large bowl and pour over the pear juice. Stir well to mix in. Cover the bowl and leave to soak overnight in the fridge.

2 At breakfast time, grate the pears and stir into the soaked grains, then crush half the blueberries and spoon into four bowls, swirl through the yoghurt and top with the remaining blueberries.

  • 1 large red onion
  • 3 ripe Bosc pears
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1 cup coarse dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat (see Note)

Fill a large bowl three-quarters full with water add a handful of ice cubes. Cut onion into 16 wedges, place in a strainer and lower into the water. Let stand for 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Halve and core each pear cut each half into 6 slices. Drain the onion wedges well and place them in a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish along with the pear slices, 1 tablespoon oil, thyme, salt and a grinding of pepper toss to combine. Cover with foil.

Roast for 30 minutes, stirring twice.

Meanwhile, combine breadcrumbs and cheese in a small bowl. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil stir to combine. Remove the pan from the oven, sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over the gratin, return to the oven and roast until the breadcrumbs are well browned, 20 to 30 minutes more. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Note: We like to use the Ian's brand of coarse dry breadcrumbs, labeled &ldquoPanko breadcrumbs.&rdquo Find them in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets.

To make your own breadcrumbs:Trim crusts from firm sandwich bread. Tear the bread into pieces and process in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. One slice makes about 1/3 cup. Spread the breadcrumbs on a baking sheet and bake at 250°F until dry and crispy, about 15 minutes.

12 Delicious Recipes to Welcome Pear Season

Come fall, it feels like apples get all the glory, but for me it’s pears that truly signal the arrival of the season. I’ll take a sweet pear any day of the week. Pears, whether Anjou, Bartlett, or Bosc, are pretty irresistible eaten out of hand, but there’s also a whole lot you can do with them.

You may notice that pears are quite firm when you pick them up at the market. These pears actually ripen best off the tree, so they are harvested mature but not ripe. When choosing pears, they should be firm and give slightly when pressed. Avoid pears with soft spots or bruising. Once home, store pears at room temperature, and depending on the variety, they will ripen in a few days.

From smoothies and salads to baked goods and savory dishes, here are 12 ways to eat pears from morning until night.

Pan Sauce Gravy

Pan sauces and gravies are delicious concoctions that use the pan drippings from roasted meats to make a silky sauce that can accompany the meat. It's usually, and delectably, poured on top of side dishes like mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables. Easy to make, our pan gravy makes the best of the flavorful bits and juices remaining in the bottom of a pan after roasting a turkey, a chicken, a rack of pork, or a beef roast, amongst other delicious meat cuts. Just flour, stock, and butter, beyond the drippings, is all that's needed to make this succulent gravy.

All gravies are made with fat, liquid, and a thickening agent, usually flour. Once you've mastered our simple recipe, there are endless ways in which you can make gravy from your pan drippings, obtaining different flavors and textures. Butter is usually the fat used in making these types of preparations, but olive oil, margarine, or lard are also common depending on your dietary preferences. Cornstarch is often used in lieu of flour to cater to gluten-free diets, and stock, broth, and sometimes milk are used as the liquid. A splash of heavy cream is preferred by some cooks, to add body to the gravy. No matter which way you go, always whisk well and season the gravy to enhance the flavor of the drippings.

We made our gravy with the drippings from preparing a steak, but you can use the drippings from a roast. Before you start, be sure to scrape off all the bits from your roasting pan and skim off some of the liquid fat that might be on top.

What to serve with Pistachio Pear Tart

I have inhaled more than my fair share of this tart just as it is. Cut a wedge, pick up with hands and devour … yum!

However, when I’m sharing with others (which does happen on occasion), I will go to the effort of dressing it up a touch! A dollop of creme fraiche is a suitably sophisticated accompaniment, with a richer, more velvety mouthfeel than whipped cream and a tang that plays well against anything sweet.

Otherwise, whipped cream, vanilla (or other flavour) ice cream is perfectly good. Then top with the chopped pistachios. I like to chop it finely enough so you get some “dust” because I think it looks nice, but it’s entirely up to you!

This autumnal beauty is fit to serve for morning tea, afternoon tea, dessert after dinner, and everything in between. – Nagi x

    1. After roasting a turkey, chicken, or even turkey wings, pour the drippings in a measuring cup. If you don't have exactly 1 cup, read above on how to properly measure for the recipe.
    2. In a skillet, melt the butter. Sprinkle in the flour and whisk continuously until the flour is completely mixed in and starts to brown.
    3. Slowly pour in the drippings, then the chicken stock. Whisk continuously as you are pouring.
    4. Sprinkle in the sage, ground thyme, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
    1. As you continue to whisk, you'll end up with a thick gravy. Pour into a gravy boat and serve immediately.
