Saffron – Cinnamon poached pear


Winter has set-in, in Delhi. Looking out for something warm and delicious. My little one is always on the look out for snacks in the evening.
The warmth that comes from saffron and the sweetness of the fruit is perfect snack for her.
Saffron is the most valuable spice and its used in both savoury and sweet dishes.Saffron and cinnamon poached pear is the most simple dessert.

This includes very few ingriedients,


Saffron 1 pinch of strands
Pears 2 medium size
water 600ml
Cinnamon 1 stick
Vanilla bean pod 1/2
Sugar 100 grams (you could use more if you want more sweet)


Place a medium sized pot over medium heat with water and sugar in it.Stir to dissolve the sugar.
Add in vanilla, cinnamon and saffron and bring it to boil.
Now simmer and add the pears. Simmer on low heat for about 30 minutes or until just fork-tender.
You could serve this warm or allow the flavour, colour to intensify by keeping it over-night in refirgerator.
If your are serving next day, do not forget to warm them up.

You could also remove the pears and further reduce the water to make syrup like consistency.

These pears would be so soft that you could just scoop them with spoon and enjoy every bite.
