Something unique, something different, made with 4 ingredients.


Number of serving: 6
3 green pears - Peel the pears; either all of the skin or peel to create a pattern as you like. Leave the stem intact.

1 tsp saffron threads

3-4 small sticks of cinnamon

1/2 lemon - squeeze the juice out and peel the skin into small pieces

1/4 cup white/brown sugar

2 cups of water.


  • Rub lemon juice all over the pears.

    Add all ingredients into a pan (including the pears) and simmer.

    Continue to cook, turning the pears occasionally so that they become saturated evenly.

    When the pears becomes tender, remove and place on a serving plate.

    Continue simmering the syrup, depending on how thick you like the syrup to be.

    Pour the syrup on top of the pears before serving.
