Wine Pairing​

A luscious yet easy poached pear dessert recipe — the perfect and delectable dessert to serve to your friends or family. The red wine sauce in this easy pear recipe enhances the natural sweetness of the fruit with a kick of spice.

Poached pears are an underrated French dessert that gives you full-blown flavor and adds excitement to any occasion. The process is so simple, yet the result is out-of-this-world. It has a balance of spice, sweetness, and fruitiness.

You need to use fresh orange juice in this recipe. Store-bought orange juice usually contains added sugar — which will affect the flavor of the poaching liquid. You can substitute orange juice for pomegranate or cranberry juice, if you like. Apple juice is also a good substitute.

To perfect this dessert, one must use Bosc or Anjou pears. Both have a mild flavor that doesn’t interfere with the complex flavor of the poaching liquid. Also, they don’t become mushy while being poached like other pears do. Bartlett pears are a no-no since poaching them can make the fruit mushy and unappetizing to eat.

Wondering what red wines to use in this recipe? You can use Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot in this recipe. The flavor of these wine will get concentrated and enhanced over time. Serve these poached pears with a scope of a homemade vanilla ice cream and a good dose of sweet wine. Check these wine suggestions:

  • Port
  • Sherry
  • Muscat
