Cooked whole pears are simmered in a lovely blackberry sauce, then halved to reveal their attractive colouring.

Blackberries

225 g

Apple juice

300 ml, as purchased, unsweetened

Instructions

  1. Peel the pears, but do not remove the stalks. Put them into a saucepan with the lemon rind, lemon juice, half the blackberries and the apple juice.
  2. Heat until almost boiling, then cover and simmer gently until the pears are tender, about 10-15 minutes.
