Spicy poached pears

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 Ripe pears; peeled, halved lengthwise, and cored
2 cups Cranberry juice
2 tablespoons Sugar
¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
¼ teaspoon Ground cloves
1 teaspoon Grated orange rind (try to use organic)
½ teaspoon Grated lemon rind (try to use organic)

Allow me to introduce you to Jane Brody's Spicy Poached Pears, an all time favorite around our house especially with my 10 year old son.

Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce the heat, cover the pan, and simmer the pears for about 15 minutes or until they are just tender. Serve the pears warm, at room temperature, or chilled.

This is a surprisingly elegant looking dessert, smells divine and tastes wonderful. A snap to prepare too.
