Poached Pears in Red Wine Sauce

Chef Corey Jordan from Wegmans shared a recipe for a nice sweet treat just in time for the holidays!  This is for "Poached Pears in Red Wine Sauce" and is also available at the Wegmans website.

7 cups water, divided
Juice of 1/2 lemon, 1 - 2 Tbsp
6 medium Bartlett pears
2 cups sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
2 cups dry red wine
1/2 tsp Wegmans Pure Vanilla Extract

1.Add 4 cups water and lemon juice to bowl. Set aside.

2.Peel pears, leaving stem on. Slice in half; scoop out seeds/core/stem root. Place pear halves in lemon water as you work. Repeat with all pears.

3.Add 3 cups water, sugar, cinnamon, wine, and vanilla extract to stockpot. Bring to simmer on MEDIUM-HIGH. Reduce heat to MEDIUM-LOW and continue to simmer for 10 min.

4.Transfer pears gently from lemon water to stockpot. (Use small plate as partial cover for pan to help pears to stay submerged.) Simmer pears 10-15 min on MEDIUM-HIGH, or until tender. Transfer pears to serving dishes. Serve hot or cold.

Serve with ice cream, mascarpone cheese, or Stilton.
