Poached Orange Pears

Poached Orange Pears

"These pears are very simple to prepare, but so elegant, assures Edna Lee of Greeley, Colorado. I love to serve them when fresh raspberries are in season. They make a beautiful presentation for special occasions and are always well liked by both young and old. TIP: I've occasionally used home-canned pear halves and no one ever knows the difference, Edna says."

I thought this recipe as is was only OK. I probably won't make this again. I'm sure a little whip cream and some additional fruits or nuts would improve this a lot.

Oh my gosh is this ever good! I don't even like pears generally but these were great. I used ground cinnamon instead of a stick. I also cooked the syrup a bit longer after the pears were done...

Very tasty. Very simple. Nice light dessert. I didn't have cinnamon sticks, so I substituted ground cinnamon and it was fine.

We loved this recipe! I've never made poached pears before and was pleasantly surprised at the simplicity of it - and the awesome results. It was delicious! I topped the pears with homemade C...

Followed the recipe exactly (using canned pears) and it was awesome the first day. However, in the fridge we kept it in the syrup we served it with, and they dried up and turned into rocks. Stor...
