Poached Pears {with wine}

So originally when I made my first Pear Galette, I did a more traditional poached pear, just in a simple syrup with some vanilla. I figured I'd play with it a bit this time and added in some wine, cinnamon and cloves. I used ground cloves, but whole cloves would work just the same.


Poached Pears {with wine}

3-4 pears
600 g sugar
600 g water
3/4 cup white wine
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 teaspoon cloves {ground}

  • Peel and core each pear.
  • To a pot, add the remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Add the pears and cook over low heat, turning the pears consistently.
  • Cook until the pears become translucent.
