  • 1 pomegranate, seeded
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons light brown soft sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  1. Place the sliced pears and pomegranate seeds into a bowl. Toss with lemon juice to coat. Combine the brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon in a small cup or bowl, then mix into the fruit.

This was great! I had it with greek yogurt and it was lovely. Good anytime - for breakfast or a pud. - 08 Jan 2009

I have the same new years resolution as everyone else, so tried this for pudding instead of something chocolatey - my favourite. It was quite nice and i had some on my yoghurt the next morning, even better. Thank you, nice recipe - 08 Jan 2009
