- 150g dark brown soft sugar
- 568ml bottle Cornish scrumpy cider
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 4 medium ripe pears
- To serve:
- Cornish Clotted Cream
Place the sugar, cider and cinnamon in a large saucepan. Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer for 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, peel the pears leaving in the stalk. Using the pointed end of a vegetable peeler, scoop out the core from the base of each pear. Place the pears in the syrup and simmer, covered, for 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally until softened.
Remove the pears and set aside, then boil the liquid for 5-8 minutes until syrupy. Allow to cool slightly before pouring over the pears and serving with a dollop of Cornish clotted cream.
