How To Make Cider Poached Pears
These poached pears with cider and orange juice are a great fall fruit dessert. They are perfectly spiced with cinnamon, vanilla, and star anise.
Peel the pear, cut in half and core.
Add the cider, orange juice, star anise, cinnamon stick and vanilla extract to a small to medium pan.
Bring to boil, then reduce to a simmer.
Add the pear halves and poach at a low-medium heat for 10 to 20 minutes.
Remove the pear halves when cooked.
Reduce the rest of the mixture over a medium heat until it is a thicker glaze.
Serve the pears with a dollop of greek yogurt, a handful of toasted almonds and the glaze.
