4 portions
Preparation time: 30 min.
Cooking time: 20 min.
Wait: 1 hour

2 Migo® pears
45 g of butter
20 g of granulated sugar
75 g of syrup
75 g of light brown sugar
200 ml of cream
1 bag of mix for crème pâtissière (140 g)
4 slices of cake
Extra requirements: 4 glass jars of approx. 250 ml with a lid

Preparation method
Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Peel the pears and cut them in half lengthways. Remove the core with a teaspoon or melon baller. Place the pear halves next to each other on a baking tray on their cut side and cover them in baking paper. Brush the pears with 20 g of the butter and sprinkle them with the granulated sugar. Bake the pears in the oven for 30 minutes. Turn them halfway through. Allow them to cool completely.

Meanwhile, place the syrup, brown sugar and the rest of the butter in a saucepan. Gently heat the mixture until the butter has melted. Stir occasionally. Bring the mixture to the boil and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Add 75 ml of cream and bring back to the boil. Leave to boil for one more minute and then transfer into a bowl. Allow to cool.

Prepare the crème pâtissière in line with the instructions on the packaging.

Cut the slices of cake in half. Place half of the pear on top with the round side facing down and the cut side against the glass. Place half a slice of cake on the bottom of each glass jar, next to the pear. Then build layers of crème pâtissière, caramel sauce, slice of cake, crème pâtissière and caramel sauce up against the pear. Close the jars and store them in the fridge.

Whip the rest of the cream at the serving location. Open up the jars and serve them with a large dollop of whipped cream on top.

Pouched pear hearts with chocolate sauce

Read the recipe here.

Serves 2
Preparation time: 30 min.
Wait: 1 hour

2 Migo® pears
500 ml of red wine
75 g of sugar
1 bay leaf
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
75 g of dark chocolate
50 ml of cream

Preparation method

Peel the pears and cut a wedge out of the round side, giving the pear a heart shape.

Place the pears in the pan and add the wine. Add enough water to just cover the pears. Please note, the pears will float. Add the sugar and spices and bring the pears to the boil. Briefly stir so the sugar can dissolve. Leave the pears to simmer gently for 30 minutes (poach) with a lid placed on the pan. They are done once you can easily prick them with a fork. Allow the pears to cool down for an hour in the poaching liquid.

Meanwhile, chop the chocolate into small pieces and place them in an ovenproof bowl with the cream and butter. Place the bowl on a saucepan of hot water and heat gently. Stir until the chocolate and butter have melted and a smooth sauce is created. Remove the bowl from the heat.

Remove the pears from the pan and dab them dry. Cut them in half lengthways.

Place two pear halves on a plate with the cut sides facing up (possibly cut into the round side so the pears stay in place more securely). Serve the pear halves with a scoop of ice cream and add some warm chocolate sauce.

Tip: Turn the poaching liquid into mulled wine by bringing it to the boil with some cut up orange (including the peel) and 3 cloves. Strain the liquid and add a dash of brandy.
