Poached Pears with Creme Anglaise Recipe (TNT)
This is a really simple dessert that I make pretty often.
1 Cup of Sugar
1 Cup of Water
1 cup of Red Wine.
About a 1/4 cup of Orange Peel
a few drops of lemon juice
Bring this all to a boil in a pan. In the mean time-
Use a Paring knife to halve the pear's, and peel the skin off. Also remove the seeds, and the stem, but leave the exterior stem, for presentation. Once this is all completed and the Poaching liquid ( Basically a Simple Syrup) has reduced to a slightly thicker consistancy, add the pears, and poach on each side for about 10 minutes.
Pour some Creme Anglaise on a plate, and top with the Pear halve's, then drizzle a little bit more of the Red Wine-Simple Syrup, which will be pretty thick by now, around the plate.
This is Delicious, EASY, and elegent for dinner party's. If you want to get fancy you drizzle some brandy or gin over the pear's and do a Flambe'. This is also a very good holiday desert.
