  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Side Dishes

 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Sweet white wine
  • 1 1" strip orange zest
  • 2 Ripe pears


Combine the wine and orange zest in a deep nonreactive pan.

Peel the pears. Slice them in half lengthwise and remove the core. Place
the pears in the pot with the wine. Bring to a boil over high heat and then
reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Poach the pears for about 35
minutes or until tender. Test for doneness by piercing a pear with a
toothpick; it should go in easily. Gently remove pears from liquid.

Poached pears may be served hot, cold, or at room temperature. If not
serving immediately, cool the poaching liquid and cover the pears with it.
