Hot and Cold Pears Recipe

Hot and Cold Pears Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 4

Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lime

100 g/4 oz granulated sugar

300 ml water
4 pears, peeled but left whole
1 egg white
150 ml soured (dairy sour) cream


Put the lime rind and juice in a pan with the sugar and water. Heat gently, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Add the pears. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently for about 10 minutes or until just cooked. Remove from the pan with a draining spoon. Leave to cool, then chill. Boil the syrup in the pan rapidly until syrupy and reduced by half. Cover and leave until ready to serve. When ready to serve, reheat the syrup. Whisk the egg white until stiff. Stir into the syrup, then blend in the cream. Heat through. Transfer the cold pears to serving plates and spoon the hot sauce over.
