Print Friendly

“Erotic with their feminine shape, pears have a provocative flavor, texture and scent certain to lure your lover,” writes Diane Brown in “The Seduction Cookbook.”

Poached Pears in Cardamom Syrup

1 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon chopped ginger
1/4 teaspoon whole cardamom seeds
1 stick cinnamon
2 large Bosc or Anjou pears, firm, peeled, stems intact


In a covered pot, combine white wine, honey, ginger, cardamom seeds and cinnamon. Place pears upright in pot; simmer on low flame for 30 minutes or until pears yield to the pressure of a fork. Serve immediately, spooning additional wine sauce over pears.

Makes 2 servings.
