Place the sugar, cloves, lemon parings, zest and juice, cardamom, cinnamon and star anise in a saucepan. Add the water, stir and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes and then leave to infuse for a few minutes, whilst preparing the pears. 2. Peel the pears from the stalk to the base. Trim off the base so that the pears can stand easily. 3. Place the peeled pears in the sugar syrup and simmer for 20 minutes or until just tender and the pears are starting to become translucent. 4. Carefully lift the pears out of the syrup. Boil the syrup for a further 20-25 minutes or until the liquid has reduced right down, is glossy and coats the back of a spoon. 5. Return the pears to the syrup and carefully turn in the pan to coat and give them a glossy sheen. Lift the pears onto a serving plate. Drizzle with syrup before serving.

Change it to Apples. Work the same way.
All those ingredients, I couldn't be bothered, quicker to open a tin of pears

Was surprised to find Sally instead of Fleur and Mike. Don't get me wrong, Sally did a fine job but I thought Fleur and Mike were the cooking hosts. Will they return as hosts or was their stint just for the few episodes we've already seen? BTW, the poached pears look delicious!

Hi, Fleur & Mike are still your regular Wednesday hosts. From time to time, we also post How To videos on the channel which are hosted by Sally. Glad you enjoyed the poached pears though!
