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

Directions

  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.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This was absolutely delicious. I do not know why, but this recipe called to me to be poured over vanilla ice cream a la banana foster. I am so glad that I did. Although I did not change the recipe any, I did use an apple corer to core the pears (easier in my opinion). This also sliced them. One thing I would recommend though is use either less sugar or unsweetened orange juice. Otherwise it will be very sweet. All in all, a wonderful treat.

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 ahead of time.. I won't make this again.
