Cinnamon-Glazed Poached Pears

Makes: 4 servings
Prep 20 mins Chill 2 hrs to 24 hrs Cool 30 mins Cook 10 mins to 40 mins
Cinnamon-Glazed Poached Pears
  • 4  medium Bartlett pears
  • 1 1/2  cups  cranberry juice or pomegranate juice
  • 1  cup  water
  • 2  tablespoons  honey
  • 6  inches  stick cinnamon or 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Wash pears. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each pear so pears stand up. If desired, remove the core through the bottom of each pear using a melon baller.

2. In a large saucepan, combine cranberry juice, water, honey, and cinnamon. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve honey. Add pears. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 10 minutes or just until pears are tender. Remove from heat and cool 30 minutes. Transfer pears and liquid to a large bowl, turning pears a few times so they each get coated with liquid. Cover and chill 2 to 24 hours.

3. Remove pears from liquid; cover and chill until ready to serve or, if desired, pears may stand at room temperature while syrup is being reduced. Strain liquid; discard stick cinnamon. Transfer liquid to a medium saucepan. Bring to boiling; simmer gently, uncovered, about 40 minutes or until reduced to 1/4 cup. Watch mixture closely at the end to prevent overcooking. Drizzle reduced liquid over pears to serve.
