These sweet and tender poached pears look beautiful as the saffron releases the golden yellow colour tones during poaching. On top of this, the poached pears were delicious with a slight scent of honey. I also sprinkled some chopped pistachio nuts before serving not only to impress my guest with a nice presentation but also a give little crunch to the soft poached pears.
