Ingredients

  • 4 Bosc Pears peeled from the stem down leaving the stems intact
  • Apple Corer
  • Paring Knife
  • 32 ounce box Spiced Chai Concentrate (sweetened)
  • 32 ounces Water

Instructions

  1. Using an apple corer and/or paring knife, core the pears from underneath (aproximately 2/3's into the pear just to remove the seeds).  Peel the pears leaving the stems intact (refer to photos).

  2. In a large saucepan or stock pot, combine the chai concentrate and water and bring to a low boil over medium heat.  Place the pears in the liquid; either weight down with a flat-bottomed saucepan lid smaller in diameter than the cooking pot or ladle the liquid over the pears periodically to ensure all surfaces cook.  

Poach pears for 20-30 minutes until soft (they will still be fully intact). Remove with a slotter spoon and place on serving plates (with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream; optional).
