Time 3h15m

Yield Serves 4

Number Of Ingredients 10

4 firm but ripe Bosc pears (about 2 pounds), stems intact, peeled
2 cups dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup fresh orange juice, plus 4 strips peeled zest (from 2 oranges)
1 cinnamon stick
1 pinch saffron, crushed (1/8 teaspoon)
1/2 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped, or 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or paste
1 cup heavy cream
1 pinch saffron, crushed (1/8 teaspoon)
1 to 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar (or to taste)

Steps:

  • Poached Pears: Core pears from bottoms, using a small melon baller or measuring spoon to scoop out seeds. Cut a round of parchment to fit inside a medium saucepan.
  • Place pears in pan along with wine, sugar, orange juice and zest, cinnamon, saffron, and enough water to mostly cover pears (about 3 cups). Add vanilla seeds, then pod. Cover with prepared parchment round.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, turning pears occasionally to keep them covered with liquid, until tender (easily pierced with the tip of a knife) but not falling apart, 12 to 15 minutes, depending on ripeness and size. Using a slotted spoon, transfer pears to a large bowl; cover with parchment round from pan.
  • Remove and discard vanilla pod and cinnamon. Bring poaching liquid to a boil and cook until reduced to a thin syrup, 25 to 30 minutes (you should have 1 to 1 1/2 cups). Pour syrup over pears and refrigerate, covered with plastic wrap, until cold, at least 2 hours and up to 3 days.
  • Saffron Whipped Cream: In a small saucepan, heat 1/4 cup cream and saffron over medium until just barely bubbling around edges. Remove from heat and transfer to a large mixing bowl; add remaining 3/4 cup cream. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes. Add sugar and beat on medium speed until soft peaks form.
  • Serve pears whole or halved in shallow bowls, with syrup and saffron whipped cream.

Categories     dessert

Time 1h50m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 6

2 cups white wine
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon powdered saffron
1/2 vanilla bean
4 Anjou pears
Fresh raspberries and mint leaves for garnish

Steps:

  • Combine wine, sugar, saffron and vanilla in a nonreactive saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, with a stainless steel knife, trim bottom of pears so they stand upright. Peel them, leaving an inch of the peel at the stem end. With the help of an apple corer or melon baller, cut out core and seeds, working from the bottom end.
  • Add pears to poaching liquid and poach them, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until barely soft. Remove pan from heat and either let pears cool in poaching liquid and serve liquid as is or, cool pears in liquid for an hour only. Remove from syrup, then reduce syrup until thickened and concentrated; cool.
  • Option: When cool, stuff cavity with fresh raspberries, stand pears upright in a bowl, drizzle syrup around pears and float raspberries and mint leaves over syrup.

POACHED PEARS WITH SAFFRON BROTH



Poached Pears with Saffron Broth image

Categories     Side     Pear     Saffron     Simmer     Boil

Yield serves 4

Number Of Ingredients 9

Saffron Broth:
4 cups pear nectar
1/4 teaspoon agave nectar
Zest of 1 lemon, in long pieces
4 inches peeled fresh ginger, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
4 teaspoons maple syrup
Generous pinch of saffron (12 to 15 threads)
2 ripe but firm pears, preferably Bosc or Comice, peeled, cut in half, seeded, and stemmed
Pistachio Cream (page 181) or Cashew Cream (page 180), for serving (optional)

Steps:

  • To make the broth, stir the pear nectar, agave nectar, lemon zest, ginger, maple syrup, and saffron together in a large saucepan or 3-quart sauté pan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then place the pear halves in the saucepan, flat side down. Place a piece of parchment paper over the pears and cover with a small plate to weight the pears down as they simmer. Lower the heat and simmer until the pears are tender and a knife pierces them all the way through without resistance.
  • Remove the pears from the saucepan. Return the liquid to the heat, bring to a lively simmer, and cook until syrupy, about 10 minutes. Taste the liquid for a quick FASS check. It may need a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon juice to balance the flavors.
  • Serve the pears drizzled with the poaching liquid and topped with a dollop of nut cream if you like.
  • variation
  • For vanilla broth, omit the lemon zest, ginger, maple syrup, and saffron, and instead stir 2 teaspoons of agave nectar into the pear nectar. Cut a vanilla pod in half lengthwise, scrape the seeds into the saucepan, then throw in the pod. Proceed with the recipe as above.
  • For star anise broth, omit the lemon zest, ginger, maple syrup, and saffron, and instead stir in 4 pods of star anise, 4 whole cloves, 2 cinnamon sticks, 2 teaspoons of agave nectar, and 2 teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Proceed with the recipe as above.
  • rebecca's notes
  • To seed and stem a pear beautifully, once it's cut in half, use a melon baller to scoop out the center, making sure to remove all of the seeds. Then use a sharp paring knife to make a small angled slice on each side of the core, running out from the center of the pear to the stem. This will remove a clean and even triangle-shaped piece where the stem and the core had been.
  • You can garnish the pears with the solids from the broth. Lemon peel, vanilla pods, star anise pods, and cloves all make beautiful garnishes.
  • storage
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.
