Howto poach fruit

Poached fruits are a great addition to a lot of desserts or on their own, for example as an ingredient in a fruit salad or with a custard. Plus you're left with mulled wine or fruity syrup as a bonus. They are very easy to make and delicious. In this recipe I am making pears poached in red wine - the taste of the wine that is left is divine:)


3 pears

200ml of red wine

100ml of water

70g of sugar

5 cloves

1 tsp of cinnamon

1 tsp of orange oil or 3 slices of orange

2 tbsp of lemon juice

1 tbsp of peppercorns


  1. Peel and core the pears.

  2. Put all ingredients apart from the pears in a pot big enough to fit the pears. Bring to a boil and add pears.

  3. Lower the heat to a minimum - just to keep the liquid and pears warm.

  4. Cook the pears for around 20 minutes turning them every 5 minutes so they are nicely poached all around. Or if you do not want to turn them, prepare enough of the liquid to cover them completely:) then you will be left with even more delicious mulled wine;)
