Mulled Wine Poached Pears

December 18, 2018Sew White

Mulled Wine Poached Pears are a super delicious and quick dessert to make. Plus with the slow cooker can be made in advance and kept warm all day.

Mulled Wine Poached Pears are a lovely light pudding. They are fruity and warm and the best thing is they are so easy. Pop everything in slow cooker and leave to warm and poach. Pears are a beautifully delicate fruit and the mulled wine infuses very very well.

It was a beautiful fruity dessert. The pear is so soft and warm with the spices from the mulled wine are clear to taste. We served it with a scoop of ice cream but it would have tasted wonderful on it’s own.

How to make these delicious mulled wine peaches.

It really is so easy to make and it only used 4 ingredients. You pop everything in the slow cooker and let it take over the cooking process. It’s a lovely easy recipe in time for Christmas.

Peal the pears, leaving the stalks on. Add them to the slow cooker with the cloves and cinnamon sticks.

Add the chopped up clementines, pour over the mulled wine and cook.

  • Put the slow cooker on a hot setting for 1 hour. Then turn it on low for 2 hours and until you’re ready to serve. Turn the pears over if the mulled wine doesn’t cover them completely.

    I really love poached pears, which I’ve previously poached in a combination of port and red wine, sometimes with a cinnamon stick thrown in, so I know I’d love this mulled wine version, what a clever idea for a quick and delicious poaching liquid and syrup.5 stars
