2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
2 pears, peeled, halved, and cored
2 cups water
1/4 cup sugar
1 6-ounce can frozen limeade concentrate
Green food coloring
4 whole maraschino cherries
Mayonnaise or salad dressing
Soften gelatin in 1/2 cup cold water; set aside. In saucepan combine pear halves, the 2 cups of water, and the sugar; bring to boiling. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 5 to 6 minutes or till pears are tender. With slotted spoon, remove pears to a bowl; cover and refrigerate. Stir softened gelatin into hot pear liquid, stirring until dissolved. Add limeade concentrate, salt and a few drops of green food coloring to gelatin mixture. Pour 1/3 cup of gelatin mixture into each of 4 flared water goblets or tall individual molds. Chill till almost set; chill remaining gelatin till partially set. Add a pear half, narrow end down, to each goblet, tucking a maraschino cherry into each. Cover pears with remaining gelatin. Chill till firm. Unmold onto plates, flared end down. Garnish with endive. Spoon some mayonnaise or salad dressing atop and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Make 4 servings.
