Serve with frozen natural yoghurt.


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


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