Cranberry and ginger poached pears

Cranberry and ginger poached pears


  1. Peel the pears, leaving the stems intact.
  2. Pour chilled cranberry juice into a big saucepan, add sugar, cinnamon stick and the finely chopped ginger.
  3. Bring to the boil and continue to stir the mixture until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Immerse the pears and poach on a low heat for 20 minutes or until soft. 
  5. Once soft take the pears from the pan and place in the centre of four serving bowls. Bring the mixture to the boil once more for 10 minutes and reduce by half until a syrup consistency has been achieved.
  6. To serve pour the syrup on the pears.
