Saffron Poached Pears

Saffron Poached Pears: 
Soft and warm pears poached in sweet and delicious saffron syrup are too good to enjoy in the Holidays. Schools are going to close from this Wednesday and the time is just perfect to try all the Holiday favourite recipes. I have bookmarked the poached pears since ages and this Holiday time is just perfect to try all Christmas recipes from the infinite list of my bookmarks.

The saffron and cardamom flavoured syrup taste amazing on the poached pears. We enjoyed the pears with some vanilla ice cream and totally loved it. So this week I am going to post three Christmas special Holiday recipes and this poached pears is the first among them.
