Muscat Poached Pears

Pears poached in Muscat wine. A lovely addition to yogurt, dessert, as patisserie toppings or as filling in crêpes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 firm but ripe pears
  • 125gr Muscat wine
  • 2 tbs honey

Recipe:

Peel and core the pears. I was left with 375gr flesh but a bit more or less is fine.
Cut the flesh into small 5-7mm cubes.

Combine the pears, wine and honey in a sauce pan. Simmer for 30 minutes or until the pears are soft. If you have relatively soft pears, you may only need 10 minutes. I find that firm pears work better as a longer cooking time yields a better infusion of the wine and honey.

Drain the pears and leave to cool.
