Recipe for Poached Pears

This recipe for poached pears is made absolutely delicious because of the couple of additions to the poaching fluid...pears are in abundance at the moment in my fruit and veg store and at a great price, too good to pass up.


  • Firstly peel and quarter your pears removing the core as you go or leave whole as you choose. I have used about 2.5 - 3 kilos of fresh Bosc Pears which cost about $3. 

    • Place them in a saucepan with a couple of tablespoons of honey, a teaspoon of grated fresh ginger, a heaped teaspoon or two of cinnamon, a cup of Rochester Ginger Drink (non-alcoholic) or "Traditional Ginger Drink with the Kick of Two Angry Mules" or Stones Green Ginger Wine (alcoholic) and finally top  the saucepan up with a little water to just cover the fruit.
    • Simmer gently until the fruit is just cooked and serve either warm or cold both are just as nice...
