Rich, decadent poached pears

Ingredients #

Methodology #

Peel the mandarins. Toss the fruit and a little of the peel into a pot,
discard the rest of the peel. Add the wine, vermouth, maple syrup and spices
(everything except the pears and cream) to the pot, and bring it to a gentle simmer.
Once ready, peel the pears and add them to the simmering wine. Cook, turning
occasionally to get unfirom infusion of the sauce, for 20-30 minutes depending
on pear size.

Serve in a dish or bowls, with the cream to make sure everything is decadent

This recipe seems to work for a lot of different fruit. Worth trying: quinces,
prunes, or plums, or several of those together...
