AD— It is essential to soak your Römertopf. The clay absorbs the water, which then turns into steam when cooking. This cooking method is particularly gentle, and preserves the full aromas of the fruit.

PN— The fruit reduces a great deal, so you eat more than if they were fresh and this is good for your dietary balance and health. A little crème fraîche to accompany it will do no harm, especially if you serve the Römertopf warm. Or even a scoop of sorbet. There’s really very little sugar in this dessert, so there’s nothing to worry about!

On the day

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
8 large apples
8 large pears
150g cassonade or light brown sugar

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
  2. Peel 8 large apples and 8 large pears. Quarter them and remove the cores. Then cut each quarter into thin slices.
  3. Weigh 150 g of cassonade or light brown sugar.
  4. Arrange the slices of fruit in the Römertopf in flat regular layers, alternating pears and apples and sprinkling each layer with a little light brown sugar. Fill the whole pot in this way to 2 cm below the edge.
  5. Cover, taking care to wedge the lid tightly and put the Römertopf in the oven for 2 1⁄2 to 3 hours, until the fruit has turned a nice golden colour.
  6. Serve warm or cold.
