    Sackville's Note:

    When pears are in season this is a reasonably simple but perfectly delectable dessert to make.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Using a small, sharp knife, score a zigzag pattern in the skin around the top of each pear, working downwards from the stalk.
    2. 2
      Leaving the zigzag skin at the top in place, peel the rest of each pear very thinly so as to preserve their shape.
    3. 3
      Remove the core from the base, using a corer or a small melon baller.
    4. 4
      Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan big enough to hold everything, including the pears.
    5. 5
      Set over a medium heat until the liquid comes to the boil, then reduce the heat so that it is barely simmering.
    6. 6
      The cooking time will vary according to the ripeness of the pears.
    7. 7
      Very ripe pears will only take 5 minutes; much less ripe fruit will need up to 15 minutes.
    8. 8
      As soon as they are ready, turn off the heat.
    9. 9
      Transfer the pears with their poaching syrup to a bowl and leave at room temperature until needed.
    10. 10
      Serve one or two pears on each plate with a little orange zest and some syrup.

      These were delicious, but my pears weren't as soft as I expected them to be. I'm guessing that had to do with the ripeness of my pears, so next time I will just simmer them a few minutes longer. Enjoy the pic!
