A quick pear dessert
In general, a typical
Australian dish is a typical British dish, which is to say a typical European
or American dish with most of the subtleties of flavour (and difficulty in
making) removed. The following dessert is a genuine Old Family Favorite in
Ingredients(Makes 1 serving)
- 2 pear halves
Preferably canned (for authenticity), but cooked fresh pear would do.
- 2 blanched almonds
(Cut two pieces of crystalized (candied) angelica, each
Carefully halve the almonds along the natural split in the nut. (This is
easiest after they are still wet from blanching.)
Place the pear halves, round side up, in the serving dish.
At the narrow end of each half, add two almond halves to make mouse ears. At
the other end, insert the angelica to make a tail.
Candied angelica is almost impossible to find in North America. Anything else
with the appropriate properties of sweetness and shape may be substituted,
e.g. a piece of chocolate or candy cut to size, such as an Ovation mint
don't measure, count.
