A classi French dessert of poached pears, ice cream and hot fudge.
- 1 bottle of sweet white wine like a riesling or champagne. I used Prosecco.
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 sugar
- 4 firm pears such as Bosc or Bartlett
Peel pears up to the stem and core from the bottom
Bring water, Prosecco, and sugar to a boil in a large dutch oven or sauce pan, add pears and reduce heat to low.
Cover and simmer for about 20-25 minutes or until pears are tender, but not too soft.
Remove pears and refrigerate until ready to use.
