1. Put all ingredients except the pears and cream in a saucepan just large enough to hold the pears. Pour in 500ml water and bring to the boil. When the sugar has dissolved, reduce the heat and lower the pears into the syrup. Simmer gently for 1012 minutes until tender, then remove from the heat and leave to cool. Serve the pears with double cream and 4 tablespoons of poaching liquid per person.
