This poached pear recipe is a perfect dessert option for cold winter nights or as an elegant, ‘fancy’ brunch dessert.
- 4 Pears
- 1 cup(s) Sugar
- 1 Bottle Sparkling Sweet Rosé
- 2 cup(s) Water
- 1 Cinnamon Stick, Halved
- 1 Lemon, Zest
- 1 Orange, Zest
- Cream or Ice-Cream to serve
Peel the pears, keeping the stems intact if possible. Squeeze a little lemon juice over them to stop them from browning.
Place the sugar, Robertson Winery Sparkling Sweet Rosé, water, cinnamon, lemon and orange zest in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar has fully dissolved then increase heat and bring to the boil.
Once the poaching liquid has come to the boil, reduce the heat again and add the pears. Cover the pears completely with a piece of foil. Cook for 20 minutes or until tender.
Allow to cool completely or serve warm with cream or ice cream and a drizzle of poaching liquid.
