  1. Carefully peel the pears from tip to base in one strip, to give them a neat shape. Place in a pan of apple juice, making sure they are totally submerged, add the star anise and honey and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  2. Reduce the liquid by half and allow to cool. Pour over the pears. Melt chocolate in a bain marie. Add the cream and mix until smooth. Serve with the pears.
