OH YES YES YESSSSS! We are huge fans of poached pears in this house. I learned of this in Brussels where I had a parfait called Belle Helene. I asked about it & found that Belle de Brillet was used. When I got home I hunted this stuff down. This is an absolute favorite drink now. (like OMG THIS STUFF IS GOOD) So of course I tagged this recipe. ;) What I did was to cook the liquid right down to a caramelly syrup. I do suggest adding boiling, not just hot, water to the caramel in Step 4. I think it will make it easier to combine. Thank you, Chelle, darling & FIGHT LIKE A GIRL! xoxo Bethie
