It’s Wednesday night and school will be closed tomorrow due to the snow storm. My daughter Yanah wants to make her lemon cake.
I am in the mood for something fancier, I have pears, wine, and sugar. So why not make Poached Pears in red wine.
6 firm Bosc pears
1 bottle of dry red wine
1 cup of sugar
Water (3 cups approximately) as needed.
(I am using half of the ingredients: 3 pears, 1/2 bottle of the wine, 1/2 cup of sugar)
Peel the pears leaving stems intact.
In a large pot bring wine, sugar, water to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
Add the pears to the poaching liquid adding water if needed to cover the pears, bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook 25-30 minutes or until tender.
Remove from the heat and allow pears to cool in the poaching liquid.
The first time I made this recipe, I served it with vanilla ice cream. Today, I am enjoying it with cake.
Let me know what do you think and how would you serve it.
