This recipe is suppose to feed 4...give me a break will ya?? Posted for Zaar World Tour/Asia. I found the recipe on Food Network, no chef mentioned.
- 2 Asian pears, peeled and cored
- 1⁄2 lemon, juice of
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 stalk lemongrass, halved
- Slice the pears in half. Coat with lemon juice to prevent browning.
- In a saucepot, add the sugar and water and bring to a boil to make a syrup. Reduce to a simmer and add the pear halves, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, and lemon grass. Continue to cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until pears are tender, but not falling apart.
Fabuloso. I doubled the pears w/out doubling the poaching liquid & all was good. Everybody here loves poached pears & these are very tasty! I used 2 cinnamon sticks instead of the tsp. cinnamon. Thanks, Katie!
