Swiss - Caramel Pears with Cheese Covering
appenzeller ® classic
Caramelize the sugar with a few drops of lemon juice in a wide chrome steel frying pan, then remove the pan from the heat.
Pour the water on to the sugar. Let the caramel simmer gently until it has dissolved.
Peel the pears, cut them in half and remove the core, then pour a little lemon juice over the pears so that they do not turn brown.
Place the pears and sticks of vanilla into the caramel syrup and simmer the fruit until it is almost soft.
Cut the cheese into thin slices.
Remove the pears from the syrup and place them on to a baking tray covered with baking paper.
Fill with the cranberry compote and place the cheese slices on top and bake the pears in on oven at 180 ° C for 6-8 minutes.
Place the baked pears into individual dishes, pour over the caramel syrup and sprinkle over a few leaves of thyme.
Tip: For another wonderful version, prepare the dessert with apples and fill the fruit with blackberry jam instead of cranberry compote.
