Pears poached in tea

Brew a few cups of tea – bring to the boil in a saucepan with star anise and a cinnamon quill add your peeled pears and simmer for around 20 minutes – keep your eye on them – don’t over cook.

Serve with cream or chilled in the morning with Greek yogurt and some muesli.

You will see I haven’t cooked the pears with any sugar, I find the pears sweet enough but if you like your fruit a bit sweeter, add 1/2 cup of sugar to your poaching liquid.
