My favourite thing about fruit done this way is that it’s equally as good for breakfast, with muesli or porridge, as it is for dessert, with icecream or cream.

- Cut the pears into quarters and remove the cores. Peel them first if you prefer. Cut the figs in half, or leave them whole if you prefer.
- Place in a saucepan with the sugar, cinnamon stick, star anise, cardamon pods and vanilla. Cover with water.
- Bring heat up to a gentle simmer and cook for about 25 minutes until soft.
- Remove fruit and increase the heat to reduce the liquid to a thick syrup. Serve fruit drizzled in syrup with ricotta and honey and have it for breakfast or dessert.
