Directions:

  1. Wash and peel the pears and potatoes.  Dice the pears and potatoes.
  2. Place pears, potatoes and butter in a medium saucepan fitted with a fan steamer. Add a small amount of water to the bottom of the pan and steam, covered, on your stovetop until potatoes are tender, about 5-15 minutes, depending on type of potatoes and size of dice. Test to make sure they’re tender.
