Poached Pears

Posted on: May 1, 2013

This is one of those easy but impressive looking desserts! The best part is how healthy it is!


  • 2-3 pears cut in half
  • 1/2 cup red wine or water
  • cinnamon


  1. Core the fruit and poach in a pan large enough to hold all the fruit lying flat, add wine. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  2. Be sure to cover them and let cook for about ten minutes.
  3. The wine should reduce down to a thick sauce that you can drizzle over the pear when serving.
  4. Serve warm with a scoop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
