Stewed Pears Recipe Recipe

Stewed Pears Recipe

Graham

Recipe by  

Stewed Pears are sweet and sticky but just the thing to keep the kids happy! Serve with lashings of double cream (heavy cream) or vanilla ice cream for a real treat. Many recipes for this delicate dessert are made with aggressive spices that may overwhelm the delicate taste of the fruit. My own approach calls for simmering the pears in a little water to concentrate the fruity flavor. It's worth looking for Poire Williams (a pear-flavored eau-de-vie) to finish the dish if you want to add a bit of "ooomph"!

How to Cook Stewed Pears Recipe

  1. Peel the pears, cut into quarters and remove the cores. Put the water, sugar and pears in a pan and cook on a moderate heat for about 25 minutes, turning the pears gently from time to time to cook evenly. Serve hot or cold.

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
If this dessert is a little too sweet for you, add a tablespoon of lemon juice rather than reduce the sugar content.
