1 litre water
1½ C (300 g) sugar
1 quill of cinnamon
2 star anise
6 cloves
4 pears, peeled

In a large pot, heat the water and sugar until warm and the sugar has dissolved. Add the spices and then pop in the pears and cover with a round of greaseproof paper cut to fit on top of the pears, with a small hole cut in the centre for steam to escape. Simmer the pears for 15–25 minutes or until the pears are cooked – it depends on the variety of pear used. Remove from the heat and leave the pears to cool in the liquid.

Serve warm with Salted Caramel Sauce and vanilla bean ice cream.
