2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cups purchased granola
In a small saucepan over medium-low, heat the preserves until melted and easily stirred.
Set the sliced pears in a large bowl, then drizzle the preserves over them. Add the lemon juice and pinch of salt, then toss well. Spread the pears evenly in the prepared baking dish.
Sprinkle the granola evenly over the pears, then cover the dish loosely with foil and bake 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake another 15 minutes, or until the pears are tender. Serve hot or cold.
