Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 ounces of walnuts per day, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet, and not resulting in increased caloric intake may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. (U.S. Food and Drug Administration, March 2004.)

How to Cook Crunchy Stuffed Pears

  1. Cut the pears in half lengthways, remove the cores and sprinkle with lemon juice. Peel and grate (shred) the ½ apple into a bowl and add the cottage cheese, walnuts and raisins. Mix together then add a little Worcestershire sauce and a dash of salt and pepper to taste. Pile the mixture into the hollowed out pear halves and garnish with redcurrants and basil leaves.


Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
If you plan keeping this dessert in the fridge for more than half an hour before serving, sprinkle a little extra lemon juice on the pear flesh to stop it turning brown.
