  1. Firstly you will need to peel & core 2 pears. Once done, slice the pears, you will get around 10-12 slices per pear, ensure they are about 1/2 an inch thick.
  2. Next, add the pears to a pan, with the water, butter & caster sugar.
  3. Poach the pears for around 10-15 minutes, ensuring you keep an eye on them so they do not over cook
