Here’s the good stuff I stuffed into it: stewed pear and cinnamon whip (for the lack of a better word).
When it starts boiling turn it down slightly and let it simmer for about an hour or until the fruit is transparent and the juice is nice and thick. The star anis and the brown sugar are absolutely essential if you want that velvety caramel flavour and a distinct pear taste. Uhmm, and then a dollop of crème fraiche gently folded into some whipped cream mixed with cinnamon and a tiny bit of icing sugar. It’s pure happiness in a silver spoon.
