Oven-poached pear ghosts, a healthy Halloween recipe that will go down a treat with little and big ones.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius (390 Fahrenheit).
Peal the pears, line an oven-proof dish with kitchen foil, and place the pears onto it.
Mix the water with the maple syrup and cinnamon, drizzle it over the pears, then cover with foil.
Bake for 20 minutes until tender, but still holding their shape.
Decorate with raisins or any other dried currants. Serve warm or cold.
Depending on how ripen the pears are, you might need to increase the cooking time from 20 minutes to 30-40. The pears should be soft, but still holding their shape.
Maple syrup can be replaced with honey or any other syrup.
