Serves: 4
Ready In: 30 mins


  • 4 ripe but firm pears
  • 365ml (1½ cup) water
  • 2 tbsp natural caster (superfine) sugar
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 vanilla pod


  1. You will need a saucepan or casserole that is large enough to snugly hold the upright pears. You will also need to cut a circle of parchment paper that is the same size as your pan and then cut out a small hole in the middle of the circle.
  2. Whisk together the  356ml (1½ cup) water and sugar into your pan/casserole over a medium heat. Split the vanilla pod in 2 and scrape out all the beautiful seeds. Add these to the saucepan along with the vanilla pod and the zest of the lemon.
  3. Squeeze the juice of the lemon into a bowl. Peel each of the pears. Toss each pear in the lemon juice to prevent discoloration before moving onto the next one. Place the pears upright into the saucepan/casserole (Dutch Oven) and carefully cover with the circle of parchment paper. Bring up to the simmer, then poach gently for 15-20 mins until the pears are tender and cooked through.
  4. Carefully remove pears from the pan with a slotted spoon, then Increase the heat to high and rapidly boil the cooking liquid until it has reduced to a lovely syrup (about 5 minutes). Discard the vanilla pod, spoon the syrup over the pears. These lovely, versatile pears can be served hot or warm or cold.
