Preparation steps

  1. Seed crackers

    Mix all the ingredients together to obtain a homogeneous mixture. Roll out to a thickness of 2 mm. Cut into the desired shape. Bake for 20 minutes at 180°C.

  2. Quince jelly

    Heat the puree to below boiling. Add the sugar. Add the gelatine mass. Take moulds measuring 7 cm in diameter and pour 15 g of the mixture into each.

  3. Pear compote

    Place the pear high fruit compote in a pan with the 16 g of sugar. Stew for a few minutes. Then pour in the rest of the caster sugar mixed with the NH pectin. Bring to the boil. Add the lemon purée and gelatine. Take flattened half-sphere moulds and pour 8 g of mixture into each. Freeze.

  4. Assembly

    Using a cookie cutter to ensure that the quince jelly is of a smaller size than the crackers, place the quince jelly on top of the crackers. Place the pear compote in the centre of the quince jelly. Make Tête de Moine rosettes and arrange them harmoniously on top of the fruit preparations. Decorate with fresh pear segments.
