Spicy Pears

    15 minutes

    Made this the other night because there were two pears left and just two of us eating. The mix of the spices, orange and pears is amazing. Serve with ice cream.

    Made as is but served with plain yoghurt. Easy and simple and really highlights the taste of the pears.  -  31 Oct 2009
