Super easy and impressive enough for dinner parties.


  • 2 cups Water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 slices lemon
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 firm pears, peeled not cored, stems on
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 3 earl grey tea bags tied together

Step 1

In the Pressure Cooker, combine water, sugar, lemon, cinnamon sticks, tea bags and vanilla essence.

Step 2

Simmer until the sugar is dissolved.

Step 3

Place the pears in the Pressure Cooker; it does not matter if they do not stand upright.

Step 4

Close and lock Pressure Cooker and bring to pressure on high heat using setting 2 (Pressure is reached when the red Pressure Indicator has risen).

Step 5

Once at pressure, turn down the heat and cook for 8 minutes.

Step 6

Remove from heat. Quick-release pressure by placing under a running tap with cool water for a few seconds.

Step 7

Insert skewer into pears to check their softness. If more cooking is required, replace lid and return to pressure to cook for a further two minutes.

Step 8

Use the slotted spoon to transfer the pears to a large bowl and discard the tea bags.

Step 9

Boil sauce to reduce until it is syrupy. Drizzle the sauce over the pears and serve immediately with custard, cream or ice cream.
