Pleasantly Plump Poached Pears with Syrup

This recipe is fantastic as it’s quick and only contains three ingredients. It’s super tasty and a healthy alternative to a slab of cake. A light dessert to end a heavy meal.

I’ve tried many recipes and different takes on it but I love this recipe which I do often for my family and they love it! It’s beautiful served with the syrup sauce or you can do a cheeky twist with melted chocolate…… Personally I love syrup. It’s great with ice cream too.

Poached Pear with Syrup and Yogurt

Poached Pear with Syrup and Yogurt

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 2 Ripened Pears
  • 2tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 1tsp Brown Sugar

Tin Foil, for cooking the pears in

Method

Heat a pan of boiling water and then reduce the heat so the water is gently simmering.

Peel the pears but keep the stalks on. Wrap each pear in tinned foil, leaving the stalks uncovered.

Place them in the simmering water for 10mins or until cooked through. (This cooking time varies due to the size of the pears and their ripeness.)

Meanwhile, add the syrup and sugar to a saucepan and gently heat until all the sugar is dissolved.

When the pears are soft and cooked through, remove from the foil wrap and serve in a bowl, drizzled with the syrup sauce. Serve immediately.
