Poached pears


Silver Member
I made a scrummy pudding tonight.
Poached pears in red wine. i based it on a recipe i did pre SW and also from the SW book.

conference pears one per person ( 3 of us) peeled but leave stalk on
300ml red wine
300ml water
5 tbsp sweetner
cinnamon powder
2 star anise

put all ingredients in to a pan and bring to boil and then simmer with a lid on for 30 mins, turning pears over every so often.
remove pears and boil liquid until reduced and syrupy.
serve and enjoy :)

the 300ml of wine in 10syns so between 3 of us 3.5 syns.
Now i decided i was not going to syn the pear, as i was only eating one and i could just as easily eaten the raw pear with the sauce, so was not synning the cooked pear. if you are going to syn the pear add 2syns ( i could only find syns for 113g stewed without sugar)
