I’m going to share a beautiful poached pear recipe that you can serve on its own, with a scoop of crème fraîche or vanilla ice cream or use as a filling for my poached pear galette. In Spain, pears are predominantly grown in the stunning Ebro Valley. Just outside Barcelona, in the Priorat wine region, I was given a version of this recipe using Carignan wine to try. It was served alongside a scoop of saffron ice-cream and I have never forgotten it.
Similar to my Spanish mulled wine recipe, this recipe is a great way to use a bottle of wine that may have disappointed or one you’ve left open and for a tad too long (who does that?!?!) and you need to use it up. It’s also simple enough, that if you have some pears handy and some unexpected guests pop in, you can whip this up in no time and leave your friends VERY impressed.
I hope you enjoy it, Raquel x
