Poached pears are a great recipe to make when pears are super fresh and flavorful in the fall. In this recipe, the pears are poached in a syrup made from tea and cinnamon. These two flavors complement the sweetness of the pears perfectly for a light and tasty dessert. The pears are served drizzled with extra syrup and a sprinkle of nuts, which add a nice bit of crunch.

Ingredients

  • 3 deciliters water
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon (black tea flavored with, and apple, It-tea)
  • 3 pears (Rocha)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 60 grams sugar
  • 15 grams starch
  • 1 egg yolk
  • almond flakes (to sprinkle)

Directions

  1. Bring water to boil in a saucepan.
  2. Remove from heat, add tea.
  3. Let tea steep.
  4. Peel the pears, and cut into quarters (removing the lumps).
  5. Strain the tea, add pear quarters, cinnamon stick, and sugar.
  6. Return to heat, and boil for 20 minutes, or until fruit is soft and tender.
  7. Dissolve the starch in the egg yolk, and set aside.
  8. Using a skimmer, remove the pears and cinnamon stick from tea, and slowly add the dissolved yolk and starch, stirring with a whisk.
  9. Bring to boil again on low heat to thicken, constantly stirring.
  10. Divide the pears into cups, and drizzle with the tea syrup.
  11. Sprinkle with almond flakes, or chopped walnuts.

I was looking for an elegant dessert for a special occasion and was glad to find this. It was easy enough that I did not feel stressed or rushed while making it. The result is so delicious and aromatic, I loved it. I garnished the pears with sliced almonds that I had briefly toasted. This was a really special dish.
