"A lovely version of poached pears that I learned when visiting France. The syrup creates a marmalade flavor! It's perfect!"

  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, mix together the orange juice, brown and white sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Place pears into the syrup, and cover; simmer pears for 1 hour and 15 minutes, spooning sauce over pears every 10 minutes, and turning pears over twice during cooking time.
  2. Transfer pears to individual serving dishes. Continue cooking the syrup, stirring often, until thickened, about 15 more minutes, then mix in the walnuts. Pour the sauce over the pears to serve.

Taste was nice, but pears fell apart. I could not core a pear without cutting it in half, so my pear did not look anything like the photograph. Would not try this for guests without testing it...

A wonderful autumn dish and so simple to make.

This is so simple and yet elegant. Wonderful flavor, would make a nice company meal dessert served in champaine glasses. I will make again.

I have never bothered to rate a recipe before, but this was so good I couldn't resist. I didn't have brown sugar, so I substituted a random amount of honey. This was spectacular.

oh my goodness...by far the best dessert ive made yet and the kids LOVED it ! ( the only thing i changed was the oj..i didnt have the real thing so i used sunny D lol and it still tastes fabulo...

Made this dish at Thanksgiving, everyone absolutely loved it and it was simple to make!!!

I made it and it was great, and the fancies thing I ever served, I really felt proud to serve it at my adult dinner party. Lol

I substituted honey for the sugar and added in some cloves to the poaching liquid. I served it with coconut cream which helped cut the syrup.
