Caramelized Peaches And Pears
|Dessert pears||1 Large|
|Fresh peach||1 Large|
|Demerara sugar||3 Tablespoon|
|Double cream||4 Fluid Ounce|
|Castor sugar||2 Teaspoon|
Peel and core the pear, and peel and stone the peach.
Cut the fruit into bite size pieces and arrange in a small shallow oven proof dish.
Cover the fruit completely with the demerara [light brown] sugar and place the dish in the freezing compartment of the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Preheat the grill [broiler] to very hot, then place the dish containing the fruit underneath it until the sugar starts to caramelize.
Allow to cool, and if made ahead of time, place the dish in the main body of the refrigerator to chill.
Whip the cream lightly with the castor [fine] sugar and serve with the caramelized fruit.
