Then pour onto the aluminum foil and spread quickly. Warning, very hot! Let cool down. Boil fresh beetroot tubers in salted water for about 40 minutes, rinse and peel. Let cool and slice. Wash, dry and quarter the pears. Remove the core, cut the pulp into thin wedges, sauté briefly in a little butter and remove.
