I love serving poached pears. Not only are they stunningly pretty but the taste is pretty stunning too.

Serves 4

You will need:
4 firm pears (I love using Bartlett)
5 bags chai tea
1⁄3 cup whiskey
1 cup sugar
water
  1. Peel the pears and place them in a large pot.
  2. Add tea, whiskey, and sugar.
  3. Add enough water to just cover the pears.
  4. Bring to boil and let the pears simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and let the pears sit in the pot for at least 12 hours in the fridge.
  6. Serve with whipped cream and some of the liquid.

TIP:

Don't throw away the liquid, use it in fruit salads or as a simple syrup in cocktails.
