Settlers' Spiced Wine Poached Pears:

Ingredients:

1 bottle of Settlers' Spice Wine

1 cup of granulated sugar

3-4 cinnamon sticks

3-4 star anise pods

4-6 whole pears (depends on size)

Instructions:

  • Combine Settlers' Spice Wine (25 oz), sugar, cinnamon sticks, and star anise pods in a pot and bring to a boil. Stir to combine.

  • Once the liquid is brought to a boil, reduce to a simmer.

  • While the liquid is heating up, peel your pears (leave whole, do not dice) and add into the mixture once it's boiling.

  • Lets the pears simmer in the liquid for 10-15 minutes or until fork tender.

  • Remove pears and set on a cooling rack.

  • Strain and keep the liquid for future use. It can be used 2-3 times. If it is too concentrated, you can add water for future uses to bring back to 25 oz.

  • Once the pears have cooled, remove the cores and dice to your preference. Serve on a platter with your favorite soft cheese. Chef David recommends a chèvre or mascarpone.

The Settlers' Spiced Wine Poached Pears will also work well in a tart/pie or in an autumnal salad.
