Pomegranate Poached Pears

Pomegranate Poached Pears

Poached pears is one of those desserts that I think of every time there is that fall chill in the air. I don’t eat a lot of fresh pears, but poached pears are one of my favorite things. They are soft and velvety and comforting. I love the flavors of this recipe – the pomegranate gives tartness and the Balsamic gives richness. The hint of cinnamon is just right without being overpowering.

We have Asian pear trees in our yard, and so I sometimes use those. My favorite pears for this are Red Bartletts or Comice pears. They have a smooth texture without a grainy texture, and yet are sturdy enough to hold up to poaching.

Ingredients
