Our NEW Limited Edition Winter Pear & Pumpkin Scrub has inspired us to get creative in the kitchen. This spiced and warming poached pear pudding is a delicious (and more-ish) way to work through the seasonal pear glut!
SLOE GIN POACHED PEAR PUD
- 100ml agave syrup
- 400ml water
- 6 x pears, small and sweet
- 1 x tangerine
- Half a cinnamon stick
- 12 x cloves
- 10 x coriander seeds
- 3 x tbsp elderberry jelly
- 150ml sloe gin
Pour the agave syrup in a saucepan, with water, and bring to the boil. Peel the pears, and stud with cloves (two cloves per pear).
Lower the pears into the boiling syrup, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Peel three wide strips of zest from the tangerine, then drop that into the syrup with the cinnamon stick and coriander seeds.
Stir in the Elderberry jelly, add the sloe gin and simmer for 15-30 minutes, depending on the pear size, until tender. Watch the pears carefully – they go from tender to fluffy collapse in the blink of an eye. Serve warm.
Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
A LOVE FOR SEASONAL SKINCARE
We love skincare inspired by the foods we love. Our new collection of Limited Edition Body Scrubs feature some of our favourite winter warmer foods and drinks:
LIMITED EDITION WINTER PEAR & PUMPKIN BODY SCRUB
Autumn re-imagined. crunchy leaves under foot, chunky knits and crisp blue skies, with our autumnal favourites: pumpkin, generously spiced with warming cinnamon, muddled with the buttery and vinous winter pear. Crammed with tart, herbal flecks of black nigella seeds for texture and earthiness, with a flood of natural oil and coarse sea salt to help prep skin for winter hibernation.
LIMITED EDITION SLOE DOWN SCRUB WITH SLOE GIN & ELDERBERRIES
Love gin? Us, too!
We’ve been gin-spired by lazy late summer strolls through the Somerset countryside. Hedgerows bulging with ripe fruits: sloes, elderberries and blackberries. Supressing the urge to ransack the hedges for home brewed-bounty, on this occasion, we’ve instead created a sloe gin-inspired body scrub. Syrupy blackberry, piquant and soapy notes of juniper-tinged sloe gin muddle with whole elderberries – verdant and lush. With a flurry of coarse sea salt and skin-loving oils to leave skin buffed, deeply cleansed and smelling good enough to drink. The perfect body scrub for gin lovers.
LIMITED EDITION HOUSE RUM & ORANGE ZEST BODY SCRUB
The perfect soak for Rum Lovers.
Herbaceous, dark and oaky rum, with toasted cinnamon, spicy cloves, and aromatic vanilla laced with orange zest. A tonic to warm the spirit and hydrate the skin through cold, dark winter evenings.
Bursting with sea salt suspended in natural oils, and with natural orange zest, to deliver a fragrant and warming treatment. Skin will be left buffed and soothed, kissing life back into tired and dull winter skin.
