Riesling Baked Pears
From EatingWell: October/November 2006
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.

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.
