Pear Compote Poached in Vanilla Bean and Star Anise Recipe found on the wonderful Sassy Radish Blog



My Sisinlaw loves Almond....so instead of buying some generic buttercreamy cake for the shower this Sunday, I'm planning to make that almond puppy up above. The only wall: SK calls for strawberry rhubarb.As this is clearly not June, I located a pear compote recipe instead...might be less tangy...but I hope it works. Pears + almonds tend to hold hands dearly.
