Poached Pears



The end of tonight's meal was poached Beurré Bosc.

To do these you will need a couple of bosc pears, a half cup of white wine and a tablespoon of honey.



The classic way of preparing this dessert is to poach them whole. Our pears were a little large so I peeled and halved them, then placed the pear halves in a covered saute pan with a half cup of white wine. After bringing the wine to a boil I poached the fruit for about ten minutes under a cover.



Toward the end of the poaching, I added a Tablespoon of honey to the wine. When the poaching was nearly complete, I removed the cover and reduced the wine to a syrup consistency.





We held the fruit this way (with very low heat) until after dinner, then plated our dessert.



I like a chilled Gewurztraminer with this fruit dish.

A good way to end our meal.

re: Poached Pears


You do something that I seem incapable of doing, which is cooking for two.

The pears look good.

re: Poached Pears


Must cook as close as possible for two because I am not much of a fan of leftovers.

That looks so good even Rohan might give you a green arrow. But he would first have to make his own pigments out of some rare substance........

You just want to be a dickhead. Which is fine. But at least be an interesting dickhead. I don't think I've ever seen you post anything remotely interesting. Granted I don't go to the soccer board. Hopefully you do work there.

re: Poached Pears


I'm confused. I didn't see any butter.

Was there a photo with butter?

First photo has a stick of butter partially showing in the background. It was just there. Not used in recipe.

Put down the gin, Gris. It's in the first photograph.

MD .. I'm not huge into pears, but what you made it looks damn good.

Love those things. I do mine in red wine with cloves and cinnamon a good bit also. Makes for a colorful presentation.

re: Poached Pears


The right side of the photos were cut off on my laptop and there wasn't the slidey bar thing at the bottom of the page for me so I couldn't see it. My favorites list is on the left side and I guess that threw it off though I usually get that bar at the bottom.

re: Poached Pears


Did you make sure that you got the pears cooked all the way through?

I'm sure that meat thermometer came in handy
