    Yum! The white zin reduced down to a beautiful pink that was as pretty as it was tasty. I received some nice dark red pears in our CSA box that upon poaching turned an almost chocolate color, did not have any fresh mint for garnish so stuck a toasted almond sliver in the top to look kind of like a stem. Thanks for the post.
