Raspberry Poached Pears


1 person made this

This is a great poached pear dessert that doesn’t use red wine. I love the combined fruits for colour and sweetness.

Serves: 6 

  • 6 medium pears
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 150g raspberries

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Extra time:1hour chilling  ›  Ready in:1hour40min 

  1. Peal the pears leaving the stem intact.
  2. In a saucepan combine the sugar and water, over a low heat stir until dissolved. Add the pears and about 1/3 of the raspberries then bring to the boil. Simmer for 20 minutes turning occasionally until the pears a just tender.
  3. Place the pears and syrup in a bowl and place in the fridge to cool, turning occasionally if the pears aren’t covered. One hour before serving add the remaining raspberries to the syrup. Serve with cream or ice cream.
