1 stalk
1 pinch
Saffron threads (about 0.1 grams)

Preparation

Kitchen utensils

1 Pot, 1 Plate, 1 Measuring cups, 1 Cutting board, 1 Large knife, 1 Small knife, 1 Peeler, 1 Slotted spoon

Preparation steps

1.
Poached Pears preparation step 1

Rinse the orange under hot water, wipe dry and cut into thin slices.

2.
Poached Pears preparation step 2

Combine the wine, honey, 200 ml (approximately 3/4 cup plus 4 teaspoons) water, sugar, orange slices, cinnamon and saffron in a pot and bring to a boil.

3.
Poached Pears preparation step 3

Meanwhile, peel and core the pears. Trim the bottoms so they can stand upright.

4.
Poached Pears preparation step 4

Skim off the foam from the poaching liquid. Place the pears in the pan so that they stand upright. Weight with a plate to keep them submerged in the liquid. Poach over medium heat until tender, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool in the liquid before serving, preferably after 24 hours to allow the flavors to fully develop. Serve the drained pears with a little maple syrup and sweetened yogurt, if desired.
