Nutty stuffed pear

The delightful texture of this light dessert is both soft and crunchy, and it tastes great too.

What you need

1 large ripe pear
1 small orange
150 ml red wine
2 tsp clear honey
1 pinch ground ginger
1/2 tsp arrowroot
For the filling
15 g chopped walnuts
1 tsp finely chopped stem ginger
3 tsp clear honey
To decorate
1 sprig fresh mint

Method

  1. Peel and core the pear, leaving the stalk intact. Slice a little off the bottom of the pear so that it stands upright. Place in a small saucepan.

  2. Peel the rind from the orange. Cut rind into thin strips. Squeeze the juice. Put the rind and juice into the pan with the red wine, honey and ginger.

  3. Bring to the boil. Cover and simmer gently for about 10 min, basting frequently, until the pear is tender. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pear to a serving plate.

  4. In a bowl, mix together the walnuts, ginger and honey. Carefully cut the pear in half through the centre, spoon on the mixture. Replace the top of the pear to form a lid.

  5. Mix the arrowroot with enough cold water to form a smooth paste. Add the paste to the red wine mixture in the pan and simmer for 1-2 min, until thickened slightly. Pour over the pear. Decorate with a sprig of mint.
