These super easy port poached pears are a mostly healthy and delicious end to any meal! I love how light they are after how heavy most holiday meals are.
Plus they literally take 5 minutes to prepare and your crockpot does the rest of the work!
The first time I made these port poached pears was about 10 years ago and my brother in law and sister in law were living with us at the time. I decided that every few weeks we would do a theme dinner and this was one of the desserts we made during those dinners. We had lots of fun trying new food and sharing that time together.
What do you need to make these Port Poached Pear- gluten free?
You need some pears. I made 1/2 a pear per person. If your group likes dessert a lot you might need a whole pear per person.
1 bottle of port wine. I bought this bottle a while back at a local AZ winery, however, I am not really a port drinking person, because I don’t like sweet drinks. It was a small 350 ml bottle.
Pumpkin pie spice. You could add them all separately but I find it easier to add it from one spice jar.
A crockpot. Or pot you want to cook this in slow and low for a few hours.
Heavy cream to whip for the top with your choice of sweetener.
The Step By Step:One: wash your pears and cut them in half. Remove the core and stem. I used a spoon to scoop it out.
Two: Put your pears in the crockpot.
Three: Sprinkle Pumpkin pie spice on the pears.
Four: Pour the bottle of port wine over the pears.
Five: Cover with the lid. Let it cook on low for 4-6 hours.
Six: Serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream on top and a drizzle of the delicious pear port sauce that is in the bottom of the crockpot.
If you want to be really fancy, you could add a tsp of vanilla to the whipped cream or cinnamon. Or liquor since it’s the holidays.
Step Seven: Try not to eat them all
