Pomegranate Poached Pears


Poached pears are an easy healthy dessert you can never feel guilty about. This recipe is so simple because it gets all the flavor from Morad Pomegranate Wine and a little cinnamon, that's it!! I love the flavor combos and so will you.

  • 4 ripe, firm Bosc pears
  • 2 1/2 cups Morad Pomegranate Wine
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds


1. Peel pears, leaving them whole and stems intact. Slice off the bases so the pears will stand upright. Use an apple corer to remove cores, if desired, working from the base up.

2. Place the pears on their sides in a large saucepan or small Dutch oven. Pour pomegranate wine over the pears add the cinnamon stick. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until the pears are tender when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife, 30 to 45 minutes. Turn very gently once or twice as they cook so they color evenly. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pears to a shallow bowl and set aside.

3. Boil the poaching liquid over high heat until the sauce is reduced to 1/2 cup, 15 to 20 minutes.

4. To serve, spoon 1 tablespoon sauce onto each of 4 dessert plates. Place a pear upright on each plate. Drizzle remaining sauce over each pear and sprinkle pomegranate seeds around it.
