As the weather gets colder every day – or so it seems right now – I’m getting really into Autumn and embracing the seasonal changes. Batch cooking stews and soups, and making warming, comforting desserts. It’s all about the desserts!
This month, I’ve gone for a tasty twist on a beautiful classic – poached pears. Some recipes call for red wine, others for good old water. I’ve opted to poach mine in one of my all time favourite tea infusions from Leaves of the World – Caramelised Peardrop. An indulgent mix of fruit and berries, almonds and natural flavourings.
All you need is a nice strong brew, some freshly peeled pears and sugar of your choice – I go for this rich, organic coconut sugar.
Ingredients (Serves 2):
3 peeled, halved organic pears
500ml brewed Caramelised Peardrop Tea
150g organic coconut sugar
Prepare 500ml of Caramelised Peardrop tea using 2 large teaspoons of loose tea infusion.
Combine the tea, sugar and pears in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
Reduce to a simmer and cook until the pears are soft and the liquid is reducing nicely.
Serve warm with vegan cream/custard .
A delicious and simple recipe, which is quick and easy to make, and tastes simply divine.
