Ginger-Orange Poached Pears

Directions

  1. Cut a thin slice from bottom of each pear so it stands upright. Working through the bottom, use a melon baller to remove core, leaving stem intact.
  2. Meanwhile, in a deep 3- to 4-quart saucepan combine next six ingredients (through nutmeg). Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat. Add pears, standing them upright. Return just to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 15 minutes or just until tender. Remove from heat; cool slightly in cooking liquid. Stir in vanilla. Transfer pears and cooking liquid to a large bowl. Cover and chill 2 to 24 hours.
  3. To serve, transfer pears to shallow bowls. Strain cooking liquid through a fine-mesh sieve; discard spices. Spoon 2 to 3 Tbsp. of the liquid over each pear. If desired, top with Sweet Cashew Cream.

*

If you like, you can use Odwalla brand 100% orange juice in place of the freshly squeezed juice.
