poires pochees


Without realizing I bought loads of  unripe pears that my kids wouldn't touch lol, so I cooked compote with half  of them and the other half this way. This dessert is very easy and quick to prepare which can be served hot or cold.  Poached pears in orange juice and allspices mixture along with raisins. You can leave the pears whole but I've preferred to cut them in half and remove the core to make it easier for my children to eat them.
