What did you poach them in? Sugar water? Wine? Vanilla? Something else?

Certainly you can you the lemon curd in some way, but whether it's wise depends on what flavors you inbued into the pears during the poach. A little more information?

poached pears and lemon curd

I poached the pears in a bottle of port wine, one cup water and 3/4 sugar. Added cinnimon a little all spice and a teaspoo or so of vanilla and little lemon juice. They have a nice flavor - touch of spice. Maybe I should just stick to vanilla or caramel icecream??

Thanks
Martha

melt sugar until brown,add 1/4 tsp of cinamon and stir in, make sugar thread, form into golf ball size while still warm. set aside. get rid of lemon curd, and make a zabaglione or other creme sauce serve pear on top and place sugaroff side of pear, lovely!

another quick trick is to let some vanilla bean haagan daaz melt in room temp and put a tbsp melted onto plate before pear. I cook everything from scratch, so dont tell anyone bout this one ;-)
