Poached Pears

  • 4-5 t Breath of Spring loose tea
  • 2 c Water
  • 3 Pears, quartered (try Anjou, Bartlett, or Bosc)
  • 1/2 c Sugar

Brew the tea as directed using 2 cups of water. Pour brewed tea into a 2-quart sauce pan. Stir in the sugar and place pan on stove over medium heat until steaming. Add the sliced pears, then cover pan. Simmer on low heat for 20-40 minutes or until pears are fork tender.

Serve these hot or you can also let cool and store pears in the liquid in a covered dish in the refrigerator. Any extra liquid? Pour in a glass and enjoy.
