    Thorsten's Note:

    This can be a dessert on its own, a side for another dessert, a condiment for a cake or just a little treat. You can easily make this in advance and keep it in the fridge for a week (if the stay that long). I make much more of the white wine, because it is great on its own.

    3. 3

      Peel the pears and quarter them lenghtwise. Core them. Put them into the bowl with lemon juice to avoid browning.
    5. 5
      After you have prepared all pears this way add them and the lemon juice to the wine mixture.
    6. 6
      Poach the pears for about 10 - 15 minutes, but don't let them boil. The pears should be soft, but still a bit firm at the end.

      Put the pears into a suited preserving jar and cover them with white wine brew. Do not remove the spices.
    8. 8
      Store them in the fridge for at least 12 hours to blend all the flavors.
    9. 9
    10. 10
      NOTE: there might be more white wine brew than you need. Put it in the fridge and enjoy it cold with a bit of ice and a lemon wedge.
    11. 11
      SERVING: Serve the pears at room tempearture with a dollop of your favorite ice cream for an easy dessert. Add some of the white wine brew to it.
    12. 12
      NOTE: try these pears also in an easy pear cake or tarte. The peares will be soft and their flavor will blend into the cake and will make it moist.
