  • Apple juice 2 cups
  • Neutral fruit jelly 20 tsps

  • To make poached pears, heat 2 cups water in a non-stick pan, add sugar, vinegar and pears and poach for 2-3 minutes. Drain and keep the pear cubes in a bowl and let them cool down to room temperature.
  • Heat apple juice in another non-stick pan, add neutral jelly and sugar mix well. When the mixture comes to a boil, take the pan off the heat and set aside to cool down to room temperature.
