Roasted Bosc Pear with Pomegranate Glaze

For 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium-sized Bosc Pears, peeled
  • 1/2 cup Kendall-Jackson Syrah Vintner’s Reserve 2007
  • 1/2 cup Fresh & Easy pure pomegranate juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/3 tsp grated orange peel
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Stir everything BUT the pears together in a medium saucepan on medium heat, takes about 2 minutes till the sugar dissolves.
  3. Place pears inside a square baking dish, pour the sauce from step-2 over the pears and send them into the oven!
  4. Basting pears with the sauce every 20 minutes till they are tender, total time in the oven is about 1 hour.
  5. Transfer pears onto preferred serving plates, transfer the remaining sauce into a small sauce pan, simmer till the sauce is reduced to about 1/2 cup, bout 3.5 minutes.
  6. Spoon glaze over pears
  7. Bon appétit! 😉

Serving suggestions:  while warm with biscotti and/or ice cream and/or blue cheese and/or shaved almonds and/or walnuts and/or bits of dried cranberries and/or …

BASTING – a  technique which involves cooking/coating using own juice or preparation sauce repeatedly over an extended period of time.

NOTES: For presentation purposes, remember to pick pears with stems on!  I actually halved the two pears without complete stems and they turned out to be more tender. So perhaps next time I should increase the sauce measurement and roast a little longer for the whole pears. The wine-pom sauce was definitely the highlight of this dish, makes you want to lick the plate, well, I did :P. Some vanilla ice cream would have gone perfect with the pears but too bad I forgot to sneak one pint home!
