Ginger Tea & Lemon Poached Pears

These pears can be served on their own, with ice cream, or with yogurt for breakfast.



  • 1.

    Bring water to just below a simmer in a large saucepot and add tea, lemon zest, lemon juice and ginger, and let gently simmer 1 minute. Add sugar and honey and return to a simmer. Add pears and cover surface of liquid with parchment paper (to keep liquid flowing gently over pears – otherwise they will float) and cook until pears for 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat, but keep pears in liquid to cool. Chill pears in syrup until ready to serve.
