Steamed Red Anjou Pear In Chrysanthemum Tea


Red Anjou pears are my recent obsession. Weeks ago, I used it in a foil-baked chicken recipe. I steamed the pears this time. Since I was tasked to work with chrysanthemums in a Little Thumbs Up event, I went with that to give my pear dessert a floral aroma.

The flavour turned out beautifully. It was smooth, with a well-rounded sweetness that made me wish I had added more liquid so that there was more to savour. But then again, more isn't always better! The sauce would have been diluted.
