Caramel Pears

The summer weather in Melbourne is crazy at the moment, it can go from 30 degrees one day to 17 a couple of days later.  Its those cold snaps that make me crave some comfort food and I got this quick and easy recipe from The Failsafe Cookbook.

Caramel Pears (Low Chem)

  • 10 pear halves in syrup cut in half again or 5 fresh pears, peeled, cored and quartered
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  3. Combine the sugar, golden syrup, butter, flour and water and whisk until smooth.
