Pears are a fun fruit to cook with and can be found in recipes baked, poached and fried as well as baked into cakes.
I love pears, and I love this recipe, because lighting the rum caramelises the sugar, and pulls out the flavour of the pears. I use pear halves but you can try it with whole pears too.
For an irresistibly tasty and tender chicken dish, try this Moroccan tagine recipe with sweet caramelised pears.
A caramel pear cake, delicious served warm with cream, or ice-cream.
These little cupcakes have the subtle (healthy!!) taste of grated pear and would you believe they are wheat-free and dairy-free.
I love this refreshing and healthy frozen dessert made of pears and yoghurt. Use low fat yoghurt if you can.
