There’s something so moreish and luxurious about poached pears – they’re ridiculously easy to make and really look as a fancy dessert.
1 cup sugar*
4 Bosc pears, peeled, cored and halved
2 Tbsp local honey
1 1-inch piece fresh ginger root or 1 Tbsp grated ginger
10 black peppercorns
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp clove
In a large saucepan over medium heat, dissolve sugar in 4 cups water. Add pears, lemon, honey, ginger, peppercorns, cinnamon and clove and simmer until pears are fork-tender, 10 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat, let pears cool in liquid, then strain and reserve spiced sugar mixture for another use. *Note that while this seems like a lot of sugar, the pears aren’t absorbing that much of it.
For dessert, enjoy pears on their own or alongside full-fat Greek yogurt, mascarpone cheese or a scoop of high-quality vanilla yogurt. Or try them in one of these dishes.
