White Wine Poached Pears and Baked Ricotta
  1. Pre heat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan forced
  2. Slice the pears into wedges
  3. Put the honey, water, wine, saffron, cardamom, cloves and cinnamon into a sauce pan and simmer for 5 minutes
  4. Add the pear wedges to the cooking liquid and simmer for 20 minutes or until the pears are soft but not mushy
  5. Strain the pears and return the cooking liquid to the saucepan and reduce in volume (by simmering) to 3/4 cup - I had 1 1/4 cup to start with Cool
  6. Meanwhile, tip the ricotta onto a baking paper lined tray and cook for 60 minutes - when finished cooking (the ricotta will be set and only lightly browned), remove and cool
  7. To serve, cut baked ricotta into quarters or spoon into desired shapes - place in the middle of individual plates and equally divide the pear wedges over or around them
  8. Spoon over the reduced cooking liquid
