Ruby Poached Pears

Ingredients:

  • 4 Bartlett or other pears
  • 4 cups ruby port
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 1 whole clove
  • 1 vanilla bean, split
  • 4 ounces Brie cheese, cut into
  • 4 wedges
  • Garnish: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, nectarine slices, fresh mint leaves

Instructions:

Peel and core pears, leaving stems intact. Cut a thin slice from bottom of each pear, forming a base for pears to stand on.

Combine port and next five ingredients in a Dutch oven; add pears. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 12 minutes or until pears are tender. Remove pears from poaching liquid; set aside to cool.

Pour poaching liquid through a wire-mesh strainer into a container, discarding solids. Return liquid to Dutch oven; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until mixture is reduced to 1 cup. Serve pears with a wedge of Brie and sauce. Garnish, if desired.
