Spiced Wine Poached Pears
Print Recipe
Our Comice pears are perfect for this amazingly simple, yet 'fancy' dessert. Comice pears are delicious on their own, but when poached in this simple wine sauce, they rise to a whole new level!

Ingredients
  • 4 whole fresh pears (peeled, stem on)
  • 2 1/2 cups red wine
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs mulling spices (Smith Berry Barn)
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Peel pears with paring knife, leaving the stem on the pear. Slice a small section off bottom to help the pear stand upright.
  2. Place red wine, water, brown sugar and mulling spices in sauce pan large enough to hold 4 pears. Add pears and make sure they're completely covered with liquid. If not, add a bit more wine and water to cover.
  3. Bring liquid just to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Allow pears to simmer in wine sauce until softened all the way through, approximately 25-30 minutes. A toothpick can be inserted into the pear to test for doneness.
  4. Remove pears from simmering liquid and place on a plate to drain and cool slightly.
  5. Bring wine sauce back to a boil and allow to gently boil for 15-20 minutes until reduced to a syrup consistency. Pour syrup through strainer to strain out spices.
  6. Place each pear in an individual serving dish. Pour syrup over pears. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and add a bit more syrup. Enjoy!
