This is a long overdue catch up from last September. I was on vacation when the rest of the French Fridays with Dorie crew made Spice-Poached Pears, and I thought that I had better get it checked off the list quick, before the season ends.
And I’m so glad that I did. This recipe made the apartment smell like Christmas and it would have felt out of place in warm weather. The pears were gently poached in a honey-sweetened, vanilla spiced bath, and then left to cool in the marinade. All in all, it was pretty darn simple.
We stirred a little of the poaching liquid into some greek yogurt and served it with the pears. The next morning I sprinkled a little granola over.
I have to say that it was very tasty. Maybe not the recipe which I would pull out for a decadent dessert. But certainly one that I can see making again for my husband and myself.
We liked these pears as well – its amazing how something so simple can be so comforting (and delicious)
