4 kaiser pears
400gr sugar
500 ml water
2 star anise flowers

A pinch of salt
A pinch of pepper
400 g sour cream

First of all, prepare the sour cream: simply add the lemon juice to the fresh cream, covr and leave overnight in the refrigerator.

Use a potato peeler to peel the pears evenly; remove the seeds from the base of the pear by making a small hole.

Add water, sugar, salt and star anise to a saucepan. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the pears and cook for 30-40 minutes depending on size.

Once cooked, leave to cool in the juice.

Serving: place a spoonful of sour cream on a plate and arrange the pear on top. Garnish with 2 tablespoons of caramel topping, a little grated pepper and 2 grains of salt.
