Apple Cider Poached Pears Recipe

Apple Cider Poached Pears Recipe featured by top US lifestyle blog, Haute Beauty Guide

One of my favorite treats is poached pears with ice cream.  I found these pears at the farmers market last week and knew it was time for a fall treat!  There is just something extra cozy about apple cider poached pears that I love when the weather gets cold.  It rained yesterday so I figure it is a perfect time.

Ingredients for your Apple Cider Poached Pears:

3 or 4 small pears – peeled

1 bottle of Martinelli’s Sparkling Apple-Marionberry Cider 

2 tbs honey

1 tsp vanilla bean paste or 1 vanilla bean

1 cinnamon stick

3 Martinelli’s Organic Mulling Spices

Directions FOR YOUR APPLE CIDER POACHED PEARS:

 Peel pears.  In a medium pot, combine cider, honey, vanilla (if using a bean scoop the seeds out and put in the pot with bean), break cinnamon stick in half and place in pot.  Bring to a boil–stirring until honey dissolves.  Place pears and mulling spice packets in pot for 2 minutes.  Remove mulling spices, reduce heat to a simmer and let pears cook about 15 minutes or until soft.  Remove pears and put aside to cool.  Bring cider to a boil again and add 1/4 cup of sugar.  Let cook until reduced to a thick sauce.  Serve pears in a bowl with a scoop of ice cream ( I used Macapuno by Marrianne’s) and drizzled in sauce.  I like my poached pears warm right off the stove!
