Red Wine Poached Pears
Plump pears poached in a simmering liquid of red wine, Rooibos and spices. Served with cream or ice cream, this is an elegant, spicy and exotic dessert.
- Place all ingredients into a deep pot, on medium heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved.
- Remove the 11 teabags after 10 minutes. Add the pears and simmer on low heat for 20 minutes. If the pears are not completely submerged, turn every 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat and leave overnight in remaining liquid.
- Serve with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or fresh cream and garnish with walnut crumble.
