  • About

This is a super-refreshing drink that is perfect for summer afternoons. A nashi pear (or Asian pear) looks like a pale-yellow apple. Although it is called a pear, the taste and texture are quite different from European pears. It has a high water content and is fresh, crisp and juicy, with a beautiful aroma.

Ingredients

Fresh

  • 2 nashi pears, about 500 g (1 lb 2 oz),

Method

Mix the sugar with 70 ml ( fl oz) water in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until thickened and syrupy. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
