Autumn is here and both the apple and pear harvests are in full swing. While apple pies and crumbles grace many a table, we settle for an even simpler dish here: autumn fruit sauteed in butter and served with tangy kefir. This dessert lacks the cloying sweetness of most sweetened varieties as it’s made without sugar or other sweeteners; rather, the natural sugar of the fruit shines through.
