Preparation method

  • Place the pears in a suitable pan or oven dish and completely cover with sea salt.
  • Bake in an oven at 190°C for about an hour until soft and cooked through.
  • Take them out of the salt and remove the peel and core.
  • Finely grind in a blender and add some sugar.

Serving suggestions

  • As a basic ingredient in a pear sorbet with a savoury character, e.g. to accompany goose liver.
  • Turn into a roasted pear panna cotta.
  • As a vegetable garnish. Mix with a little butter and it combines wonderfully with main courses containing game and poultry, as well as pan-fried pike perch.
