Every morning for the past week I've been making the most autumnal of breakfasts: porridge with homemade pear puree. Our friend in Gloucestershire gave us a bag of deliciously ripe pears from her own trees, and this is my favourite way to eat them. For one serving, peel and core a pear, chop into chunks and tip into a saucepan. Add the tiniest drizzle of water, or orange juice, to the pan, to prevent sticking. Gently heat for two or three minutes, then puree with a potato masher. Pour over a bowl of hot, thick porridge, and a top with a drizzle of Greek honey.
