Poached Pears

Poached Pears

2 cups white wine
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
2 whole vanilla beans, split and scraped
4 pears, peeled leaving the stem intact

Place the white wine, water, sugar and vanilla bean in a saucepan. Add peeled pears and bring to a soft boil. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Once pears are tender, remove from syrup. Using a melon baller, core the pears from the bottom. Serve standing upright. Garnish with whipped cream and cinnamon if you like.

These can be served warm or chilled.
