Fantastic! I've only had poached pears once before, but this recipe has now made them one of my all time favorites. The kitchen smelled so good while these were cooking and the taste was wonderful. Thanks for a great keeper, Leslie. Made for ZWT8 - Australia.
We made this last night for my friend's birthday dessert. It was really good. Since one of my friends is gluten-free, desserts can be kind of tricky. This was elegant and hit the spot and was really good with vanilla bean ice cream. Thanks!
So delicious! I just wish I hadn't waited so long to try this recipe. The only change I made was to use ground all spice instead of whole. I served them chilled over vanilla bean ice cream. We can't wait to have these again. Thanks for this delicious recipe.
Fantastic! I made these for a sweeter green salad and my husband said it was the best he's ever had. I used ground allspice and ground cinnamon instead and ended up letting the pears soak for about a day in the fridge. The coloring was beautiful and it had a nice strong spice taste. I served them chilled instead of warmed.
SO simple and easy to make, TRUE! Seemed like you fussed when you didn't AT ALL too! GREAT for entertaining, LOVE is low fat too! Who said you can't have your meal AND a low fat dessert for two?
This was easy to make and the kitchen smelt so very good while it was simmering on the stove. I left off the whipped cream as hubby isn't allowed any. I like the colouring when it is sliced, just a hint of red then its white. Excellent dessert.
Loved this recipe. Made on stove top with split pears. Did not have whole allspice so used star anise and vanilla bean, 3 whole cloves. I also used some leftover Cabernet wine. Removed pears when tender and boiled sauce way down. Served with vanilla ice cream but we have 4 pieces left and will try over our Malt o Meal in the morning
Great!! loved this dessert. Had three pears wife ate two. A company dessert. I also did on stove top because the oven was in use.
Excellent! A Comforting Sweet, and Spicy Dessert!I added cardamom to the wine mixture.Garnished with some coffee ice cream. I poached stove top not in the oven.Came out perfect!
