Sophisticated Poached Pears
8 ounces white grape juice
2 Tbsp strawberry jam
2 Tbsp orange juice
1 tsp orange zest
2 cinnamon sticks
5 whole cloves
1/2 tsp ground ginger
4 whole, peeled and cored pears
In a large pot, combine juice, jam, zests and spices. Simmer
over low heat for 10 minutes.
Place the pears in the liquid. If not covered 3/4 of the way,
add water or orange juice to cover. Allow to simmer until pears
are just soft. Remove pears and place in individual serving dishes.
Allow to cool. Strain poaching liquid. If a hot sauce is desired,
return liquid to pot and allow to reduce over low heat until slightly
thickened. If a cold sauce is desired, place in a glass or stainless
steel dish and allow to freeze until liquid forms a slush. Pour sauce
over pears and serve immediately.
