This recipe is simple and delicious. The pears are served on their own, simply dressed with a few spoonfuls of the cooking liquid. The result is an incredibly tender fruit with delicate aromas of the cooking wine, honey and thyme.
Choose to use a more or less strong honey and wine depending on how prominent you want their flavors to be. We found the recipe was as enjoyable eaten warm or at room temperature and this makes a lovely light festive pudding.
- 750ml (25 fluid ounces) sweet white wine
- 3 tbsp honey
- 3 sprigs of thyme
- 4 pears
- Pour the wine in a small saucepan and add the honey and thyme. Bring to the boil.
- Peel the pears carefully, keeping them whole. Add to the saucepan. Simmer on a gentle heat for about 15min, until the pears are really tender. Take off the heat and serve.
