I love pears. There's something so elegant in their simple shape, beautiful color, and subtly grainy texture. No preparation showcases these characteristics better than poaching.
In the perfect celebration of autumn, my boo poached these pears in maple syrup with vanilla, cinnamon stick, and ginger. Sprinkled with some roasted pecans, the result was delicious. It is a stunner of a dessert, with minimal time and effort. Definitely worth adding to the repertoire.
