Super easy and impressive enough for dinner parties.
In the Pressure Cooker, combine water, sugar, lemon, cinnamon sticks, tea bags and vanilla essence.
Simmer until the sugar is dissolved.
Place the pears in the Pressure Cooker; it does not matter if they do not stand upright.
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).
Once at pressure, turn down the heat and cook for 8 minutes.
Remove from heat. Quick-release pressure by placing under a running tap with cool water for a few seconds.
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.
Use the slotted spoon to transfer the pears to a large bowl and discard the tea bags.
Boil sauce to reduce until it is syrupy. Drizzle the sauce over the pears and serve immediately with custard, cream or ice cream.
