Cinnamon Poached Pears

Makes: 8 servings
Prep 20 mins Chill 2 hrs to 24 hrs Cook 15 mins
Cinnamon Poached Pears
  • 8  small to medium pears (about 3 lbs. total)
  • 1 750  milliliter bottle  dry white wine or 3 cups apple juice
  • 2  cups  water
  • 1  cup  sugar
  • 1  2-inch piece  peeled fresh ginger, cut into strips
  • 3  inches  stick cinnamon, broken

1. Peel pears, leaving stems intact. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each pear so pears stand up. If desired, use a melon baller to remove the core through the bottom of each pear.

2. Meanwhile, in a 4-quart Dutch oven combine the wine, water, sugar, ginger, and cinnamon. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat until gently boiling, stirring occasionally to dissolve sugar. Add the pears. Return liquid just to boiling. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 15 minutes or until pears are just tender. Remove from heat and cool pears slightly in syrup. Transfer to a very large bowl. Cover and chill 2 to 24 hours. Drain pears to serve. Makes 8 servings.
