Red Tea Poached Pears http://cookingstoned.tv/recipe/red-tea-poached-pear/

I doubt there is anything more elegant than a poached pear. I just love them because, well, most fruit-based desserts are more everything else other than fruit, such as pies or cobbler (not that I don’t indulge in all that butter and sugar). But poached pears are about pears, plain and simple. I poached these in red tea only because I wanted to use something other than wine. The mulled roobios tea worked out perfectly! Spicy, rich and full of flavor… the syrup is divine; tasty on pears and your lover!

  • 4 Bosc pears
  • 6 Cups Water
  • 6 Tablespoons Roobios Tea, loose leaf
  • ½ Cup Sugar
  • 20 pink Peppercorns
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 Vanilla Bean, halved and scraped
  • 1 Star Anise
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 2 orange slices
  • 1 lemon peel
  • 2 Cloves, whole
  • 3 allspice berries

How to: Freeze & Preserve Fresh Herbs in Olive Oil1. Choose fresh herbs from the market or your own garden.2. You can chop them well, or leave on branches and leaves. In the photo, the herbs are finely chopped.3. Place on trays of ice cubes (about 2/3 full of herbs).
4. You can mix herbs (sage, thyme, rosemary).5. Place extra virgin olive oil or unsalted melted butter over the herbs.6. Cover with plastic and freeze.7. Remove frozen cubes and store in small containers or bags to freeze.8. Do not forget to label each container or bag with the type of herbs (and oil) inside

Clever idea! Whenever I buy herbs, I seem to end up throwing too much away. Now I could freeze them and have them at hand whenever I needed them!

we do this and it works great. ~redjeep
