  • 4 ghosts Serves: 4 ghosts

Place the peeled pears into a saucepan with the apple juice and cinnamon stick. Lid on, simmer gently for about 20 minutes, until the pears are slightly soft. Remove from the juice and place on a plate.

Remove the cinnamon stick and continue to gently simmer the remaining juice for about 5-10 minutes until it has thickened slightly and become syrupy.

Pour the pomegranate juice into another small pan and gently simmer for about 10 minutes until thickened slightly and become syrupy.

Cut a thin slither off the base of each pear so they stand. Give each ghost pear two eyes (make a small hole with a skewer first to make sure the eyes stay in!) & push the sunflower seeds into the pear to make a small circle for a scary ghost mouth.

Drizzle a little of the ‘blood’ syrup into each ghost mouth & a small drizzle/puddle of the reduced apple juice – Serve your scary ghosts with care ooooooooo!!!!
