Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 50 minutes
Cooling time: 1 hour
Cals: 208/ Fat 0.16g/Sat fat 0.0g/ Sugar 52.08g/Salt 0
150g light brown soft sugar
1 lemon, partly pared and partly zested
2 cardamom pods
1 cinnamon stick or cassia bark
1 star anise
4 firm but ripe blush pears
1. Place the sugar, cloves, lemon parings, zest and juice, cardamom, cinnamon and star anise in a saucepan. Add the water, stir and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes and then leave to infuse for a few minutes, whilst preparing the pears.
2. Peel the pears from the stalk to the base. Trim off the base so that the pears can stand easily.
3. Place the peeled pears in the sugar syrup and simmer for 20 minutes or until just tender and the pears are starting to become translucent.
4. Carefully lift the pears out of the syrup. Boil the syrup for a further 20-25 minutes or until the liquid has reduced right down, is glossy and coats the back of a spoon.
5. Return the pears to the syrup and carefully turn in the pan to coat and give them a glossy sheen. Lift the pears onto a serving plate. Drizzle with syrup before serving.

FOLLOW ME HERE, MY LOVELIES!!
Yields 6 pears
3 cups (720 mL) of port
1 cup (200g) of sugar
¼ cup (35g) of mulling spices
½ cup (120mL) of orange juice
1/2 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped
6 pears, peeled and cored
1 cup (225g) of mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
2 tbsp (42g) of Honey
In a large saucepan combine the port, sugar, mulling spices, orange juice, and the vanilla bean and seeds. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Peel and core the pears, and thinly slicing the bottom so that it lays upright, making sure to leave the stem attached.
Add the pears and simmer until the pears are cooked through, about 15-20 minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool in the poaching liquid.
Before serving, remove the pears from their poaching liquid and reduce the liquid to a syrup. Strain the sauce through a sieve into a bowl.
Add a small pool of liquid on the plate and place the upright pear in the center. Combine the mascarpone and honey in a small bowl. Dollop a small amount of the mascarpone on each plate.
POACHED PEARS in sour cherry juice
The easiest and fastest dessert to make, ever! Great taste, and lovely presentation.
Just to mention that the juice I used for poaching the pears is the juice from the jar of sour cherries I bought. So, I used the cherries for the pie, and I saved the juice for this recipe.
Do not cover the pears completely because later, when the pears are soft, you what to reduce the juice to syrup.
Add approximately two, or depending on your taste more or less brown sugar.
How to Make Poached Pears with Crème Anglaise
Poires Belle Hélène or Poached pears are served with a créme anglaise drizzled with chocolate sauce and sprinkled with sliced almonds. You'll find the recipe ingredients and instructions below.
1 cup (250 mL) half-and-half (10%) cream
1 vanilla bean
2 large egg yolks
3 Tbsp (36 g) granulated sugar
4 firm Bosc pears
3 cups (750 mL) granulated sugar
3 cups (750 mL) water
Chocolate Sauce (makes about 1 cup/250 mL)
¼ cup (60 mL) whipping cream
3 oz (90 g) bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 Tbsp (45 g) unsalted butter
2 Tbsp (30 mL) milk
2 Tbsp (25 g) packed light brown sugar
2 Tbsp (30 mL) corn syrup
1 pinch salt
½ cup (50 g) toasted sliced almonds
1. For the crème anglaise, heat the cream in a small saucepan over medium heat, along with the scraped seeds and the vanilla pod until it just begins to come to a simmer. Remove the vanilla pod. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar in a small bowl. Slowly pour the hot cream into the egg mixture while whisking constantly, and add this back to the pot. Switch to a wooden spoon and stir the cream (still over medium heat) until it coats the back of the spoon, about 4 minutes. Pour the crème anglaise through a strainer and cover the surface of it directly with plastic wrap. Cool to room temperature and then chill completely.
1. For the pears, peel the pears (leaving the stem on, if possible) and scoop out the core from the bottom of the pear, using a melon ball scoop. Bring the sugar and water to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cut the lemon in half, squeeze the juice into the pot and add the lemon halves as well. Add the pears to the liquid, ensure a gentle simmer is reached and then cover the surface of the liquid with a pieces of parchment cut to fit inside the pot, and top this with a small plate or lid, to keep the pears under the surface of the liquid. Poach the pears for about 20 minutes, until they are tender when pierced with a fork or skewer. Remove the pot from the heat to cool, and then transfer the pears and the liquid to a bowl to chill until ready to serve.
Chocolate Sauce (makes about 1 cup/250 mL)
1. For the chocolate sauce, stir the cream, chocolate, butter, milk, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt together in a heavy bottomed saucepot over medium-low heat until melted and smooth. Remove the sauce from the heat and serve warm or chill for later use. The sauce can be reheated to make it more pourable. (The chocolate sauce will keep, refrigerated, until the best before date of the cream.)
2. To serve, spoon some of the crème anglaise into a flat-bottomed bowl (such as a pasta bowl). Place a drained pear upright in the centre of the plate. Drizzle warm chocolate sauce over the pear, letting it spill into the plate with the crème anglaise and sprinkle with sliced almonds.. Serve immediately.
