DIRECTIONS

  • Peel pear, halve it lengthways and remove the seeds with a melon baller. Use a small, sharp knife to neatly remove the hard core leading to the stem.
  • Put the pear, cut side down, in a small saucepan with the orange juice, cover and bring to simmering point then cook gently for 8-10 minutes, just until tender, turning the halves over after 5 mins and spooning some of the juice over them.
  • Leave to cool in the juice. Peel the mandarin, divide into segments and remove the membrane covering each segment.
  • Put pear half in each bowl and spoon pan juices over. arrange mandarin segments around and decorate with a mint sprig.
  • Serve chilled or at room temperature.
