A partridge in a pear tree! Or maybe some poached pears?! Poached pears are a wonderful and simple Christmas desert on so many levels. Firstly, if you're looking for something quick to throw together with limited preparation time, then these are perfect!
Pears are in season from September through to January which means that we can take advantage of good prices for Organic pears (currently £2.50 for 4 in Tesco). But the great thing about pears is that they provide lots of health benefits.......
Well, there are lots of variations with poached pears and you could always poach in red wine with some cloves, star anise and cinnamon. However, I'm going to suggest a simple recipe that all the family can enjoy which is alcohol free but not taste free!
By the way, did you know that research has shown that cinnamon can reduce blood sugar? Talk about a guilt free desert!! This is truly a Christmas treat and a change from the stodgier puds we know and love. Bon appetit!!
