Poached pears in wine (or Poire à la Beaujolais) is a classic French dessert that originated in the #wine-growing territories of Burgundy and Lyon. The #French used it as a way to consume fruits that were not ripening to their liking on the tree. By combining peeled pears with wine and a bouquet of spices, the people of the region were able to maximize their harvest while creating a dish that highlights the fruit’s, natural sweetness. This poached pears in red #wine recipe offer a warming dessert option for a cold winter night or an elegant brunch dish for a family get-together. Select a fruit-forward red wine for this ensemble. And pair it with your favorite spiced tea or serve it next to a dollop of artisanal vanilla ice cream topped with homemade whipped cream. The presentation lends a translucent look to the fruit, infused with red undertones. It’s a decadent dessert that will impress your guests and won’t overpower the dinner spread. Get the Recipe
