Pear, Chocolate, Cinnamon

Uncategorized | January 12, 2008 | By

The Cooks Journal Forum have a challenge to make something using three ingredients, Pear, Chocolate and Cinnamon were the three for this month. Here is what I did:

Four ripe pears, peeled and the seeds cored out from the bottom of the pear but stalk left on, place the pears in a pan and add a 175cl of white wine, 1 tablespoon of caster sugar and half a cinnamon stick. Bring the liquid to simmering point, simmer for 5 minutes, turn off the heat and leave the pears to cool in the liquid.

When ready to serve, take half a bar (100g) of good dark chocolate, break it into a small pan, add 3 tbps of the liquid from the pears and heat gently, stirring to mix, add a small knob of butter once chocolate has melted, once butter has melted, spoon over the pears and serve.

A light but delicious dessert AND one of your fruit portions!
