Poached Pears

Sweet Cheat Poached Pears

Yield: 2 Servings

Cook & Prep Time: 30 - 35 minutes

These are quick and easy to make, look beautiful, and taste incredible. Be sure to select pears that are still firm an not overripe; you don't want them to dissolve into much while you're cooking them! Serve them with cream, warm custard, or Sweet Cheat Vanilla Whipped Cream.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 Tbsp Sweet Cheat Spoonable Monk Fruit
  • 2 Bosc or Anjou pears
  • 1 1/2 cups red wine
  • 2 2-inch strips of orange peel (removed with a vegetable peeler)
  • 2 fl oz fresh orange juice (from half a large orange)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 whole cloves
  • Dash of nutmeg (freshly grated if you have it)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch (optional, to thicken poaching liquid into a syrup)

1

Peel pears and set aside.

2

Combine remaining ingredients in a sauce pan and whisk constantly while bringing to a boil.

3

Reduce to a simmer and gently lower the pears into the liquid and simmer 20 - 25 minutes, turning pears every few minutes to cook evenly.

4

Serve the pears with some of the poaching liquid poured over top and some Sweet Cheat Vanilla Whipped Cream on the side.
