For the poached pears:
For the filling:
Note: Poached pears can be made 1 day ahead and chilled. Bring to room temperature before serving.
Tip: If you want to increase the colour of the pears, remove cinnamon sticks from poaching liquid, transfer liquid and beets to a blender and blend until smooth. Strain through a sieve and pour the liquid back over the pears. Cover and chill in fridge until you’re ready to use them. Strain liquid whenever you’re ready to serve the pears.
