Verjuice Roasted Pears
Step 1: Preheat a fan forced oven to 190C.
Step 2: Peel the pears, cut in half lengthways and place into a mixing bowl.
Step 3: Add the brown sugar and butter to the pears and mix together well so that they are evenly coated.
Step 4: Place the pears cut side down, onto a lined 30cm x 20cm shallow sided baking tray and evenly space out.
Step 5: Place the tray into the oven to roast for 15 minutes, then turn the pears over and drizzle with Verjuice and cook for another 15 minutes.
Step 6: Note: At this stage, the Verjuice should have evaporated by half, creating a buttery brown sugar and Verjuice syrup and the pears should be soft and cooked through. If the pears have not softened completely, cover with foil and cook for a further 10 minutes, this will depend on the ripeness of the pears to begin with
Step 7: Remove pears from the oven and allow to sit for 15 minutes to cool slightly before serving with mascarpone and the Verjuice syrup from the baking tray.
