  • Electric Beater
  • Chef's Knife
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Saucepan


  • 750 ML White Wine Riesling
  • 1 Cup Water
  • ¾ Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 4 Pears Firm to touch
  • ½ Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • Salt a pinch, to taste


  • Combine wine, water, sugar, vanilla, honey and cinnamon in a large pot and bring to a boil.
  • Peel the pears, leaving the stems intact.
  • Place pears in the liquid and arrange so that they are covered. Reduce to a simmer and cook until pears are softened, about 30 minutes. Remove pears and place into a dish standing upright. Chill pears in the refridgerator.
  • Bring poaching liquid up to a boil and cook until the liquid has a syrup consistency, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Combine heavy cream, honey and salt into a bowl. Using an electric beater, whip together until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes.
  • Serve pears with salted whipped cream and drizzle poaching liquid over the pears and cream. Enjoy!


*Use firm, unripened pears. Ripe pears will be hard to peel
