Frozen yogurt with poached rum raisin pears

  • 80ml plus 1 tbsp dark rum
  • 125ml pear juice
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 35g raisins
  • 3 large firm-ripe pears, peeled, cored, and each cut into 8 wedges
  • 15g cold unsalted butter
  • 470ml frozen vanilla yogurt (regular or nonfat)
1) Combine 80ml rum with pear juice and sugar in a 25cm heavy skillet and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally.

2) Reduce heat, add the raisins and pears, and simmer, covered, until pears are just tender, about 10 minutes. Remove the lid from the pan and using a slotted spoon, remove the pears to a plate. Boil the poaching liquid, stirring occasionally, until liquid is reduced to a syrup, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in the butter and the remaining tablespoon of rum and return the pears to the pan.

Serve over frozen yogurt.
