Christmas quickies: Quick non-alcoholic pear punch

Christmas comes so suddenly every year! Is tomorrow really the third Advent? Frantic people in the crowded inner cities, the supermarkets are already preparing for the impending Weltuntergang Christmas circus. Shake hands, who does not get nervous when asked, "And? What's up with you at Christmas? You're definitely cooking a big festive meal, like a blogger? ". Panic! But seriously: Does this stress have to be? I do not think so! And then a glass of delicious pear punch!

At this time of Christmas, which should actually be more contemplative and quiet, the stress something There is now a Christmas Quickie . What is that? A quick idea for the feast of the festivals and a last-minute recipe for the whole family! And because a quickie recipe might not be enough, I've teamed up with Petra von Hol (l) the chef, Sibel from Insane in the Kitchen, and Simone from S-Küche. We present four brilliant and quick ideas for Christmas. Without a long preparation time, but still festive and ingeniously simple and fast. Maybe there's a little excitement for you too.

For me, there is a fruity pear punch from fresh pears. Everyone can heat juice with spices! It is even better, however, if you get a few ripe local winter pears, mashed with vanilla and cinnamon and then processed into a delicious punch. Thanks to cardamom, maple syrup and the acidity of the lemon you get a very complex drink with wonderful aromas. The punch is slightly warmed and tastes the whole family. Of course I can not stop you from adding some rum, you are old enough after all ... But in the classical version the drink is non-alcoholic, also healthy and really tasty! Have fun copying!

  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

Peel and quarter the pears and remove the core.Puree at the highest level. I put everything in Thermomix and chopped it to 10 for 1 minute.


Pour the puree through a fine sieve into a saucepan so that the remaining pieces of vanilla pods are caught. Add 300 ml of water and the lemon juice to the pear puree. Press the cardamom capsules and place in the pot. Heat at the lowest level for a few minutes while stirring. I simply set my induction plate * to 60 ° C and slowly heated the mixture for about 10 minutes.


Then remove the cardamom and stir in the maple syrup. Spread the pear punch on four heat-resistant glasses or cups and add one lemon split and one cinnamon stick to stir. Serve hot.
