Specialty Recipe

Poached Pears with Almonds

Ingredients
4 to 6 red-skinned pears (may be under ripe)
1/2 cup sugar
Orange juice to cover
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger or finely diced crystallized ginger or 1 bottle ginger beer
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Whipped cream

Peel pears and scoop out core from blossom end with a melon baller. Don't remove the stem. In saucepan, mix sugar, orange juice, lemon juice, lemon rind, and ginger. Bring to a boil. Place pears in syrup. Bring to a second boil. Cover and simmer 10 to 15 minutes, depending on ripeness of pears, until barely fork tender. Remove, cover surface with plastic wrap, and refrigerate.

Serve one pear with sauce and garnish with a bit of flavored whipped cream and sliced almonds or any tasty fruit sauce.
