We got a lot of pears in our farm shares this year so I have been making chutneys and my wife has been using them in salads but there are still more than a dozen pears left in the fridge. So I figured cook one a bit and put it over vanilla ice creame. I had a pear tart with clotted creame before that was quite good so I headed to the kitchen a few minutes before "Inspector Lewis" was going to start to cook up a pear - and it was good.
Servings:
two per pear
Preparation Time:
10 minutes
Tools
  • 9" to 10" saucier or skillet, w/ lid
  • cutting board & knife

Ingredients

  • 3 T. water
  • pear
  • 1/4 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. brown sugar
  • dash of nutmeg
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 T. muscat wine
  • vanilla ice creame
Cooking Instructions
  • Place the pan over medium heat while you peel and core the pear.
  • Add the water to the pan then slice the pear in half and cut the halves into 1/4" thick strips.
  • Place the strips into one layer across the bottom of the pan and cook covered for two minutes.
  • Uncover and sprinkle the cinnamon, brown sugar, fresh grated nutmeg and pinch of salt over the pears.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for one more minute.
  • Drizzle the wine over the pears. Cover and cook for one more minute.
  • Uncover and cook until the liquid thickens into a syrup - one or two more minutes.
  • Spoon pears and syrup over ice creame and enjoy.
