- 10 dried pears (about 170g)
- 500ml grape juice

Start by turning your dried pears into ears. Using a paring knife slice off a little on one side of each pear to give the impression of an ear that has been cut away from the head. Next, use a 1/4 teaspoon measure and create dents, then curl over the outer edges of the pears. Be as creative as you like and use your own ears for inspiration!
Add the juices, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon and ginger to the pan and whisk with a silicone whisk. Submerge the blackcurrant tea bags in the mixture followed by your pear ears.
Place pan on a low heat and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 3 minutes before removing from the heat and leaving to infuse for another 5 to 30 minutes.
Take 250ml (8.8fl oz) of liquid from the pan and reserve. Strain the liquid from the ‘ears’ and place onto a plate then transfer the punch to mugs if serving hot or glasses if serving cold.
Add the reserved liquid back to the pan and bring to a boil then add 1/4 tsp agar powder, whisk, and boil for 2 minutes.
Serve the ears with ice cream or on their own then drizzle the sauce over the and enjoy.
