Here is a simple pear recipe that can serve as a basis for other recipes (Tarte, compote for example) You can decorate the syrup of all the spices that make you crave, even a drop of alcohol. (Grand Marnier for instance)
Ingredients for the poached pear
- 4 pears
- 1 vanilla bean
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 1/3 l of water
- 1 teaspoons
- 50 g of sugar
Preparation of the poached pear
In a large saucepan, boil the water with the sugar.
Meanwhile, pear the pears. Keep the line for the presentation.
Empty it from the bottom so that the hole can not be seen too much. Put the pears in the sugar syrup with honey, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla pod split in 2.
Cook gently for 20 minutes.
When serving, filter the syrup and serve with the pears.
You can also use pears in a pie, this will give an extra fragrance. (In this case, reduce the cooking time to 10 minutes)
If you are like me and you love chocolate, add melted chocolate on the top of the pear. You are going to love this one!
