Baby Pears and Ice Cream

Posted By Stephen


Some friends gave us baby pears preserved in sweet wine as a Christmas present.  I thought that they would go well with some vanilla ice cream, so that’s what we did.  When I opened the jar I realised that the baby pears were a lot more baby than I thought they’d be; they were very tiny indeed.

The pears had quite a strong flavour from being preserved in sweet wine, so the ice cream wasn’t quite strong enough to hold up to them.  A drizzle of Pedro Ximinez (a sweet, raisiny Sherry) over the ice cream gave it a bit of a kick and brought it together with the pears a lot better.
