Cinnamon pear preserve
A tasty recipe for your family!

500g caster sugar

150ml water

2 lemons, sliced

1 cinnamon stick

Scant pinch of nutmeg

½ tsp fennel seeds

32 small dried bay leaves

7 large, slightly unripe pears, peeled, cored and sliced into thin wedges

Place the sugar, water, lemon slices, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, fennel seeds and bay leaves into a saucepan over a medium heat and simmer, carefully stirring until the sugar dissolves and a syrup forms.

Add the pear wedges and increase the heat slightly.

Simmer gently until a thick syrup forms - this should take about 12 to 15 minutes. Stir from time to time.

Carefully spoon the preserve into sterilised jars, seal and label. Store the jars in a cool dark place until you are ready to use. Once open, keep in the fridge.
