From a market stall I bought a bowl of pears for £1. In it were 14 of that fruit, and in perfect condition. What a bargain it was. As time past, the last few to be eaten were on the decline. So I peeled them, cut them up, and added Pernod. In a day the spirit had been absorbed, and the result, with a dollop of Cornish cream, was – well, delicious.
You will need;
Pernod or another aniseed spirit
Peel and cut up the pears, discarding only the stems and pips.
Place the pieces in a bowl, add a little Pernod, and turn it around. Refrigerate the fruit until wanted.
