How Do You Make Poached Pears In Wine?
Experiment another way to cook or prepare pears with this delicious wine sauce. This can be served as an appetizer, dessert, or a snack. Serves 4 people. • Imagine that the pears are in the pan and pour enough wine to that amount. Do not place the pears in the pan at this time. • Place the vanilla, sugar, and cinnamon stick into the pan and place the lid on. • Let the wine mixture become to a simmer. • Use a vegetable peeler and peel the skins off from the pears. Leave the stalks on (the “sticks” on top). • Turn down the heat and place the pears carefully in the pan. Let the pears cook for 2 hours (or until the pears are very soft) at a very low temperature. • Place the pears on a cutting board. • Heat the wine mixture back to a boil on medium heat. Make sure that your result is a thickened “sauce” or mixture. • Cut the bottom of each pear. This allows them to stand up on their own. Serve the pears with the stalk up. Drizzle the wine mixture over the pears.
