    Annacia's Note:

    If lady apples and Seckel pears aren't available, don't worry -- this poached fruit dessert works with any fall fruit. Try pears and quince or a mix of cooking apples.

      Very good and healthy dessert. I used some yellow apples and bartlet pears -- 4 apples and 3 pears. I also didn't have any star anise so I subbed some anise seed and 3 whole cloves. For the leftovers I am topping this with plain yogurt for breakfast. Thanks for sharing!
