Pears in White Wine Sauce



  1.  Add 4 cups water and lemon juice to bowl. Set aside.
  2. Peel pears, leaving stem on. Slice in half; scoop out seeds/core/stem root. Place pear halves in lemon water as you work. Repeat with all pears.
  3. Add 3 cups water, sugar, cinnamon, wine, and vanilla extract to stockpot. Bring to simmer on MED-HIGH. Reduce heat to MED-LOW and continue to simmer for 10 min. 
  4. Transfer pears gently from lemon water to stockpot. (Use small plate as partial cover for stockpot to help pears to stay submerged.) Simmer pears 10-15 min on MED, or until tender. Transfer pears to serving dishes. Serve hot or cold. 
Chef Tips
  • You can store pears in liquid in refrigerator overnight. You can also remove pears from liquid and cook liquid 20 min to reduce to a syrup and drizzle over pears as a sauce.
  • Using a y-peeler, follow the contour of pear, taking long peels from top to bottom. Then peel around the bottom in a circular motion; leave stem intact. Cut pear in half. Use a melon baller to scoop out the seeds and the bottom stem portion. Also remove the stem root with a knife. Add both halves to lemon water. Repeat with remaining pears.
  • Options
    Serve with ice cream, mascarpone cheese, or Stilton.
