Poached Bosc Pears
Simple and delicious, poached Bosc retain their distinctive buttery flavor and are firm enough to maintain shape.
- 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
- 2 1/2 cups dry red wine
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 3 whole cloves
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 6 ripe Bosc pears, peeled and cored
- mint sprigs (garnish)
- Dissolve sugar into wine and water. Add cloves and cinnamon stick.
- Pears may be poached whole, or cut in half and poached. Add pears to wine mixture and heat just until simmering. Lower heat and poach gently for 20 to 25 minutes.
- Remove from heat and allow to stand in poaching liquid overnight. Gently remove them from the poaching liquid and drain briefly on paper towels.
- Serve with Creme Anglaise, whipped cream, or a reduction of the poaching liquid. Garnish with fresh mint. To reduce poaching liquid, boil until liquid is reduced by 2/3, or becomes a light syrup.
You may poach 2 or 3 pears at a time, removing when poached, then adding rest of pears or halves.
