|Spice-Poached Apples or Pears|
The lovely fall weather has made this weeks pick for French Friday perfect! Easy…yes…so it fit into my crazy week! I chose to use Bartlett pears. I prepared them late in the afternoon, planning on serving them for dessert! The syrup is very quick to create. Blend water, sugar, honey and spices together and boil. The syrup also contains lemon and orange zest in large pieces, and the juice of both. That’s it for the syrup! Peel and core the pears, or whichever fruit you choose, and add them to the pot for 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove your fruit and continue to boil the syrup until reduced. Remix the fruit and syrup, and let cool before serving.
This dish was great! We ate them at room temperature and really enjoyed them. Dorie suggests serving with Creme Fraiche, or plain yogurt, or maybe over ice cream. I like them just the way they were…Delicious!! Happy Friday everyone!!
This recipe can be found in Dorie Greenspans cookbook “Around My French Table” and you can also find it here. To see what my fellow Doristas are doing check it out here.
