Ingredients
 

  • 2 ripe pears
  • 300 ml cranberry and grape juice (pre-mixed carton)
  • 1 small sprig rosemary

Instructions
 

  • Peel the pears, retaining the stalks, and slice lengthways into halves or leave whole if you prefer.
  • Put the juice in a medium-sized pan, slot in the pears and heat to a simmer.
  • Poach them uncovered for about 30 minutes until the pears are tender and the liquid has reduced by about half.
  • Spoon the juice over frequently so that the pears take on a pretty blush colour.
  • About 5 minutes before the end, pop the sprig of rosemary in for flavour.
  • Serve warm or cold with the juice.
