Even words like heavenly do not do full justice to this dessert , which is really beyond comparison. Pears, stewed in sugar along with whole spices like cinnamon and cloves, is laced with lemon juice, and topped with a lusciously fruity apricot sauce.
A garnish of walnuts is the final masterstroke, which beautifully balances the texture and flavour of the Pears with Apricot Sauce. Serve this dessert as soon as it is assembled.
