And that's how it's done
And that's how it's done
Bring the wine to the boil along with the sugar, lemon zest, cinnamon stick, star anise and clove. Add the pears, cover and simmer over a low heat for approx. 20 mins. until soft. Turn the pears occasionally so that they are covered with the liquid on a regular basis, leave to cool in the liquid. Remove the spices, reduce the liquid to a syrupy consistency, leave to cool.
To serve
Place the chocolate in a thin-sided bowl and suspend over a gently simmering bain-marie, ensuring that the bowl does not touch the water. Melt the chocolate and stir until smooth. Plate up the pears and ice cream, drizzle with chocolate sauce and a little syrup.
