Pears poached in red wine - organic and vegan
As part of our drive to eat healthily, we go for organic wherever possible.
|Pears poached in red wine - organic!|
A few days ago, on our boating travels, Karen spotted a pear tree next to a lock. Of course she picked a few.
They were a still bit hard still, but ripened nicely.
We have also found a good supply of organic red wines here in Netherlands - Our next dessert was a no-brainer!
So - take about six or seven pears (not too ripe), cut into quarters and remove pips.
Cover with a mixture of red wine and water, add stevia liquid to taste and 2 cinnamon sticks.
Bring to the boil and turn off the heat and let them stand. That way the pears can soak up the flavour yet not go too soft or soggy.
We served with Alpro soy cream.
Such a delicious yet simple dessert.
