Recipe of the week

Ginger caramelised pears, lime yoghurt

Ingredients (for 2)
3 firm pears
Fresh ginger (about an inch or two)
Greek yoghurt

Zest lime and mix with 2 tbsp sugar to taste, rubbing the mixture together to get the oils out. Mix into yoghurt. The flavour will improve if made in advance.
Make about 250ml sugar syrup (50/50) with the ginger
Peel, halve and core pears
Cook pears in syrup - they should absorb most of the syrup.
When they have absorbed most of the syrup and are nearly cooked, turn the heat up high and start to caramelise them. After a minute or so, add a few tablespoons of butter to make a sauce.
