Pear & chocolate

All this talk of crumbles, had me reaching for a bar of Whitaker’s dark chocolate at the supermarket. Mother-in-law had brought a large bag of pears with her, and the combination of chocolate & pears … yum. So Martin Bosley once said, and he’s right. This is his suggestion.

Preheat the oven to 180 C. In a bowl combine:

5 ripe pears, peeled, cored & roughly chopped

grated zest of a lemon

3 cm piece of ginger, peeled & grated

2 tbspn soft brown sugar

50 gms dark chocolate, roughly chopped

Place in an ovenproof dish, mix another 50 gms chopped chocolate into the crumble topping, and bake for 35 – 40 minutes. The chocolate melts through the dish. Bound to please.
