• 1 l cider
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 cloves
  • 4-6 pears (peeled, cored and quartered)
  • irish honey (to flavour)
  • berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries)


  • Reduce the cider by half in a large saucepan.
  • Add the pears into the cider with the cinnamon, honey and cloves. Poach over a gentle heat (poach for about 10 minutes until the pears are soft).
  • Take the pears out and put into a large container.
  • At this point you may add more honey to the cider and reduce down further if you like - this step is optional.
  • Pour the cider stock syrup over the pears and allow to cool naturally.
  • Add the berries to the pears and mix through.
  • Serve with frozen natural yoghurt.
