Riesling Baked Pears

October/November 2006

Your rating: None Average: 4 (45 votes)

Here's an elegant yet simple twist on the autumn classic. Pears are oven-poached in Riesling wine, which is known for its floral accents and aromas and hints of honey and pear. Serve this dessert with lightly sweetened ricotta cheese. Delicious hot, room temperature or chilled.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This is a wonderful fall recipe! I cut the recipe in half for just my husband and myself and it was easy and delicious! I also served a small dollop of ice cream along with the pear - especially yummy when eaten warm! "

I have made this twice for company. It was a big hit. Just make sure your pears are ripe.

I made this without the orange zest and used a Chenin Blanc. It's delicious, and makes the house smell wonderful!

Add a pinch of nutmeg and 1 clove, omit the honey, core the pears to remove the pits, score the skin and cook in the microwave instead. It works just as well with red wine and a dash of sugar substitute.
