Honey Poached Kieffer Pear

Honey Poached Kieffer Pear
The Kieffer pears is probably one of the most exciting variety of pears.  An accidental hybrid between a European and Chinese sand pear, they are crisp, juicy, and have a very unique musky aroma. 
We think the best way to enjoy these is poaching the fruit, with burrata, mascarpone, or vanilla ice cream!
INGREDIENTS
  • Kieffer Pear
  • 3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • cinnamon sticks
  • anise stars
  • 1 vanilla pod

DIRECTIONS

  • Combine water, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon, star anise, and vanilla in a saucepan

  • Add pear and let it it simmer for 10 minutes
  • Turn every 5 minutes and do not overcook (they're done when they soften a bit)
  • Turn off heat and let it sit in the liquid for 5 minutes
  • Remove from saucepan and plate
  • Boil the poaching liquid to medium heat until it's reduced and thickens
  • Pour over pear and enjoy
  • If you're feeling adventurous, serve with mascarpone, burrata, or vanilla ice cream
