    Title: Poached Pears
    Categories: Fruits, Desserts
    Yield: 4 servings

    4 Pears
    1 l Water
    250 g Sugar
    1 Cinnamon stick
    1 Vanilla pod
    2 Star anise
    5 Whole cloves
    Lemon peel

    Peel the pears, leaving the stem on. Cut off the bottom
    so they can stand when plating

    Place all the ingredients except the pears in a saucepan
    and bring to a boil

    Add pears to the saucepan and reduce to a simmer. Poach
    for about 45 minutes or until the pears are soft

    Let the pears cool down. Meanwhile, boil the syrup until
    it reduces and thickens to a glaze

    Serve the pears warm or cold with syrup and some cream,
    or even better, with creme anglaise!
