PEARS BAKED IN CIDER

I really like the sound of this baked pear dessert.  The combination of pears, fruit and nuts, cream and creme fraiche – not forgetting the cider – is quite appealing.  It’s probably more a cool weather dessert, although maybe it would work served chilled on a warm night.

CHICKEN COOKED IN CIDER

A couple of years ago my youngest son had a great holiday in Tasmania and came back with several bottles of a new cider he’d discovered – Pagan Cider.  Since then we always have a few bottles in the fridge, one of which I’m now going to use to try this chicken recipe – guess I’d better make it when he’s coming for dinner.
