Yield: 2 Servings
|Red wine or red grape juice|
|White wine or jasmine tea|
|Mint sprigs; for decoration|
|Icing sugar; for decoration|
Take four ripe pears, peel, core and quarter two of them and freeze them.
Carefully peel the other two pears and poach one in red wine and one in white. If you prefer not to use wine, poach one in jasmine tea and one in red grape juice.
Halve the pears and remove the core. Put the frozen pears in the blender or food processor with 3 to 4 tablespoons syrup and blend until smooth.
You can make this before dinner and it will retain its soft texture in the freezer for a couple of hours. When ready to serve, arrange the two pear halves and some sorbet on chilled plates and serve immediately. Mint sprigs and a dusting of icing sugar decorate the plate simply.
