Poached pears have always seemed a little scandalous to me. Pale, tender, curvaceous pears slip their clingy skins to skinny dip in a syrupy concoction, then brazenly pose on a little plate in all of their glory. They’re like the Victoria Secret models of the fruit dessert world. Fortunately, they’re completely family friendly and perfectly safe to share with children and husbands alike. They’re a great way to whip up a simple dessert and you can find poached pear recipes from the simplest (simmered in a plain simple syrup) to the extravagant (simmered in wine with exotic spices). When I’m feeling extra indulgent, I like to drizzle mine with chocolate ganache.
