  • 4 firm Bosc pears
  • 1 1/2 cups cups pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 cup port wine
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts
  • 1/2 cup creme fraiche
  • Mint, for garnish

Make It

1. Peel pears. Cut a small slice from bottom of each pear so it will stand upright.

2. Place pomegranate juice and port in a large covered skillet and bring to a boil. Place pears in skillet on their sides. Cover and simmer 40 to 45 minutes, until tender. Turn pears a few times so all sides color evenly.

3. Remove pears to serving plates. Cook poaching liquid over high heat 3 minutes, until thick and syrupy.

4. Spoon sauce over pears. Garnish with walnuts, creme fraiche and mint.
