INGREDIENTS


3 cups (750ml) water
1 cup (250ml) sweet dessert wine
1 cup (200g) brown sugar
1 vanilla bean, split
1 cinnamon stick
2 whole star-anise
1 tbs dried lavender flowers (see note), plus extra, to serve
4 packham pears, peeled
Vanilla or lavender ice-cream, to serve
DIRECTION


Combine the water, wine, sugar, vanilla bean, cinnamon, star-anise and lavender in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Add the pears and bring to a very gentle simmer. Cover with a sheet of baking paper. Cook, turning occasionally, for 1 hour or until pears are tender. Remove pears from syrup and place in a heatproof bowl.

Increase heat to high and bring syrup to the boil. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until syrup thickens. Strain through a fine sieve over the pears. Set aside for 30 minutes to cool. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 2-3 hours to chill, turning pears occasionally.

Place the pears on serving dishes. Drizzle with syrup and serve with ice-cream, if desired.
NOTE:

Dried lavender flowers are available from delicatessens and www.herbies.com.au
