Spiced pears

6 pears
3 cups white sugar
6 cups water
1/2 stick of cinnamon
1 bay leaf
rind of 1/2 lemon
2 cloves

Prepare the poaching liquid, the spices and other ingredients,
before you begin to peel the fruit as the pears will discolour
quickly. In an enamel, glass or stainless steel pot large enough
to fit six pears, tip in the sugar, lemon rind, cinnamon stick,
bay leaf and cloves. Stir in six cups of water and bring to a
simmer. Peel the pears neatly and add to the liquid when simmering.
Simmer gently for 45 minutes, long enough to poach the pears so
they hold their shape without disintegrating. Switch off the heat
and allow the pears to cool in the liquid. The pears will cook
further as they cool to room temperature and the spice flavour will
penetrate the fruit. Once cooked the pears are ready to serve.

To make a quick sauce to pour over the pears boil down the poaching
syrup until it thickens into a sauce. Serves 6.
