Poached Pear Tart is another one of my lush recipes. I love the succulent taste of the poached pears which have a hint of the Eastern spices seeping through as you take a bite from the tart.
Prune puree, I purchase from Urban Native Organics and Wholefoods in Stroud Green, London. It’s a small store, which I support. You can find them here
It’s the Clearspring brand that I use of the Prune puree. Normally, once open, I place in the freezer for use subsequently. This keeps it fresh and available to use at any time.
Amaranth seeds, I get from a non-profit small charitable store in Stoke Newington, London – I like to support small outlets, where I can. You can find the shop here
Blanched almonds, I purchase from a nifty Asian outlet in Hayes. It has an online presence too which can be found here – I love it because it is reasonably priced and tends to be good quality stuff which I use.
