Pear-fectly Crumbled

Nonna did some spring cleaning. She found some long forgotten canned pears that Oma (Nonna’s mom) had canned and given her. You’ll have to watch the video so see how it came out. Needless to say if you are ever in a zombie apocalypse and you find canned pears you’ll, know what to do with them.

Pear Crumble


    • 2 quarts canned pears with cinnamon (See Note 1)
    • 4 tsp lemon juice
    • 6 tbsp sugar
    • 4 tbsp AP flour
    • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
    • A couple of dashes of ground nutmeg
    • 2 tbsp goat butter
    • 4 tbsp chopped nuts (your choice as to kind of nuts)
    • 4 ounces sweet goat cheese
    • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (See Note 2)


    1. Grease a baking pan to prevent sticking. Nonna uses canola spray.
    2. Drain the canned pears. (See Note 1)
    3. Spread the pears out evenly in the baking pan
    4. Sprinkle with lemon juice.
    5. In a mixing bowl, add goat cheese, sugar, oats, flour, ginger, and nutmeg. Mix. (See Note 2)
    6. In mixing bowl, add cuts of butter and mix until crumbly.
    7. In mixing bowl, add nuts. Mix.
    8. Once crumbly, sprinkle over pears.
    9. Bake 350°F for 25-30 mins or until bubbly.

Note 1: Nonna used home canned pears. If you do not have home canned pears, use about 6 medium pears, peeled, and sliced.

Note 2: Nonna’s canned pears already had cinnamon added. However, if you pears have not been flavored with cinnamon, you should add 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (or more) as you desire.
