Red Wine Poached Pear with Crumble and Chocolate Sauce
Rich poached pear serve with crumble topping gives it a lovely crunch. The syrup I stumbed upon accidentally as I forgot to turn off the stove and tasted what was left in the pot as it was thick and shiny and it was delicious so went straight on the menu.
Ingredients – serves 4
Make sure you have baking paper for this recipe.
4 Pears suitable for poaching – Like a Bosc for example
1litre of Red wine – It doesn’t have to be expensive
300g Caster sugar (A)
40g Slithered Almonds
40g Desiccated coconut
100g Caster sugar (B)
100g Plain flour
Optional for serving: chocolate sauce using cream and melted chocolate combined, your choice of ice cream or orange blossom yoghurt. In the picture those are the extra bits I have used.
Reheat the pears quickly in the microwave or oven. Spread your sauces and crumble on the base of the plate and add the pear on top.
Coat the pear with the syrup and pour some extra around the plate. Make sure you taste the syrup first to make sure you know how much you need as this will vary dependant on your wine.
