The poaching of pairs of pears


Pears were cheap this week $.99 a kilo in fact.  I poached in a mixture of water to cover the pears, 1 cup of sugar, lemon zest, star anise, cinnamon and saffron, for around an hour.  The sauce was reduced down till it was all sticky and syrupy and then served the whole lot hot with double cream.
