Red Wine Poached Pears

Fresh fruit makes great desserts, including these red wine poached pears which are sweet and soft with cinnamon and raspberry flavors.

Pear is a very underutilized fruit that is similar to apples but has a better texture when cooked and doesn’t dissolve as easily. In this recipe the sweet pear partner well with the richness of the red wine based poaching liquid.

The pear and sauce are very rich, so it is necessary to serve it with something to help pull this back such as whipped cream or a plain vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

1 pear

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon dessert rub or 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup red wine

1/2 cup water

1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

1/4 cup raspberries

Equipment

small pot

Recipe Directions

  1. Prepare the pear by pealing, then halving and taking the seeds out.

  2. In the pot add the sugar, dessert rub, wed wine, water, vanilla, and raspberries. Slowly bring to a simmer, stirring to make sure the sugar dissolves.

  3. Add the pears to the red wine liquid and simmer for 20 minutes, or until soft.

  4. Remove the pears from the poaching liquid then slice thinly before transferring to the serving plate and adding some additional poaching liquid as a sauce.
