Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Top and tail the pears, then peel. Quarter and cut out the cores, then chop into small chunks.

  • STEP 2

    In a medium pan, sauté the shallot, ginger and garlic in the oil for about 3 mins, then crush in the saffron and cook for 1 min. Tip in the sugar and cook on a medium heat until it begins to caramelise lightly (give the pan a good shake and stir if it starts to clump). Deglaze by stirring in the vinegar and cook for a min until absorbed.

  • STEP 3

    Stir in about 100ml cold water and bring to the boil. Add the pears and dried fruit with a little seasoning and stir gently. Cook on a medium heat for 3-5 mins until soft (length of cooking will depend on the ripeness of the pears). Remove and cool. Will keep in the fridge for 3 days.
