Hibiscus Poached Pears


This sweet sounding Hibiscus Poached Pears recipe is one of my favorite fall desserts which includes a beautiful range of ingredients that work so well together to enhance the flavors of the others. Bosc pears infused and poached in salted-honey with hibiscus tea, peppercorns, cinnamon sticks and orange rind. I serve mine with vanilla crème fraîche for the perfect compliment.

Steps to make Hibiscus Poached Pears


Prepare salted honey water


In a large Dutch oven, boil 8 cups of water. Add ½ cup of honey and ½ teaspoon of kosher salt. Boil while stirring until the honey is dissolved completely.


Add infusion ingredients


Remove the Dutch oven from the heat and add 6 hibiscus tea bags, 5 black peppercorns, 1 cinnamon stick and 1 piece of orange rind. Cover and set aside for 10 minutes to steep and infuse. Remove and discard tea bags.


Prepare pears


Add 8 peeled pears to the pan and cover with remaining 1-2 cups of water. Cut a 10-inch circle from baking parchment paper and gently place of the pears. Bring to a medium-high boil then lower the heat to medium-low, cover the pan with a lid and simmer for about 1 hour until the fruit is tender. Remove the fruit with a slotted spoon.


Prepare sauce


Strain the remaining liquid over a bowl and reserve 2 cups. Over medium-high heat, return the 2 cups to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook for about 20 minutes until thickened and reduced to about ½ cup of poaching syrup.


Prepare creme fraiche


In a small mixing bowl, whisk ½ cup of creme fraiche with ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract until combined.



Serve the poached pears with vanilla creme fraiche and prepared syrup drizzled over the top.
