I officially bought my first Christmas tree. It is a living 1 1/2 ft European Cypress. I am so excited that I found a living tree! Ben also got us a pine candle. Needless to say we are feeling quite festive here in the mountains. The Christmas spirit has also made me want to cook festive food, even dessert- something that I don’t normally crave.
This recipe is perfect for people who crave fruit more than chocolate. I used my SousVide Supreme to cook the pears, but you can also poach the pears in the same liquid in your oven at 350F until soft; just be sure you have enough liquid to filled cover the pears. The rosemary compliments the sweetness of the honey so well. Serve with Tahitian Vanilla ice cream for a delicious and simple dessert!
Heat wine, lemon, honey, water and rosemary in a small saucepan until simmering. Vacuum-seal all ingredients in a sous-vide bag. Cook in water bath at 183F for 1 hour. Drizzle cooking liquid over pears and serve with vanilla ice cream.
