Something New Every Day

A record of doing a new thing every day in 2011

Poached Pears (288/365) Saturday October 15, 2011

Needed something nice to eat on my Saturday feast day, and the day before we’d been watching Nigel Slater on TV do some poached pears covered with cream, crushed biscuit and melted dark chocolate. That fitted the bill nicely, so we gave it a go.

The pears were poached in some sugared water plus a bit of vanilla essense, and turned out very nice, quite light but tasty.

The better than usual presentation you can see in the picture was down to Hilary, who drizzled the melted Green and Blacks chocolate over the top in a very artistic way!
