How to Poach a Pear

One of the requests I was asked on Instagram (@dan_churchill) was how to poach a pear, so whilst showing you how you can create something tasty and colorful, I wanted you to come away with a new skill to add to your cooking arsenal. This recipe was created on a burner down by a beach, (you can see that below). So if I can do it there you can cook it in your own home with ease my friends. WATCH THE RECIPE VIDEO BELOW

Im trying to impress someone is this recipe a great option?

Whats great is you can swap the pear for another fruit, the yoghurt contains 2 ingredients and with the simplicity of honey, this recipe is that easy to create. You have the gorgeous fruit, the texture of the almonds, the creaminess of the yoghurt and then topped with that natural honey sweetness this is a winner.

What are the Benefits of Turmeric?

Health Facts: Turmeric is the richest antioxidant spice on the planet. Its happy yellow colour doesn’t just bring you a smile it prevents cancer causing tumors from forming and also ensures your immune system is killing it!
