Tasty Thursdays: Poached Pears with Raspberry Sauce

Thursday, October 18, 2012

I love anything with fruit involved; it was perfect that I stumbled onto this recipe on Taste of Home for poached pears with raspberry sauce -- yum! It's such a great treat for autumn. The following recipe serves for 2.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup white wine or white cranberry juice
  • 2 medium pears, peeled and halved
  • 3 tablespoons seedless raspberry spreadable fruit
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Fresh raspberries and mint leaves, optional


  • In a small saucepan, bring the water, sugar and wine to a boil. Reduce heat; carefully add pears. Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes or until tender. Remove pears and reserve cooking liquid.
  • In a small bowl, combine spreadable fruit and vanilla. Stir in enough cooking liquid to form a sauce consistency. Cover and refrigerate sauce and pears separately until chilled.
  • Remove sauce from the refrigerator 15 minutes before serving. Place two pear halves on each dessert plate; top with sauce. Garnish with raspberries and mint if desired. Yield: 2 servings.

I love how elegant this looks--- especially because it isn't overly decadent (aka unhealthy!). And pears are perfectly seasonal!
