Delicious Poached Pears With Raspberry Sauce

Updated on January 10, 2014

This poached pear with raspberry sauce is fairly new to me, as i'm sure it's new to you as well. I was talking to a restaurant chef and he told me this was so delicious and he was so right. This makes a wonderful dessert and side dish for a family dinner or special occasion. This delicious sauce makes these poached pears 100 times better than before! I even managed to get my young cousin to eat pears and she hates them! This is something I will be keeping on my kitchen shelf for the rest of my life, and you should too.

  • lemon juice
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups frozen, lightly sweetened red raspberries, thawed
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
