I am finding it hard to walk past the pears in the fruit aisle at the moment, they are super sweet and tasty. One of my favourite treats is to make a fruit salad by poaching the pears with a little white wine, and orange and cinnamon for a fresh injection of flavour. Prunes and feijoas add flavour and texture. Serve this delicious dessert with cream.
- Place the water, wine, sugar, cinnamon and orange peel in a medium pot. Bring to a simmer.
- Add pears, feijoa and prunes to the simmering liquid. Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes until pears are just soft all the way through when pierced with a small knife. Remove and allow to cool slightly before serving with whipped cream.
