POACHED CINNAMON BROWN PEARS
6 brown pears not peeled, halved and core removed
1 cinnamon stick
3/4 cup brown sugar
water as needed
In a large pot place the pears, cinnamon stick, brown sugar and enough water to just cover. Bring to the boil then allow to simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until the pears are soft enough for a knife to slide easily into them.
Drain the water and allow pears to cool slightly. Pears can be kept whole in the fridge to add to breakfast cereals or porridge, or to make a puree simply blend in a food processor. This is perfect for babies first meals or freeze and add to add to muffin and cake recipes as needed.
