Poached Pears

Today, I’ve decided to end the party food with a sweet fruit treat – poached pears. I have made a fail safe, tasty, quick recipe to make them in batch for a party treat.

This recipe is set on a ration for 1l of water, depending on how many litres you will need,  multiply the quantities for as many as you need.  I cook between 4-6 at a time using 1 litre.

Ingredients –

4 x pears peeled 

1 litre x water

4 tablespoon x brown sugar 

4 tablespoons x vanilla essence

1 x cinnamon stick

Method –

  1. Place liquid and all ingredients,apart from the pears in a saucepan,  big enough to sit all pears in and bring to the boil.
  2. Allow the flavours to infuse for 5 minutes,  before adding pears and turning heat down to a low heat.
  3. Leave for 5 -10 minutes checking they are are soft, all the way through.
  4. Ensure pears are soft before removing, serve immediately.
