Stoofperen met Rode Wijn (Red Wine-Poached Pears)

 made it  |  0 reviews   |   photos

"A simple, but delicious recipe for poached pears in red wine. You only need a handful of ingredients. You can eat the pears as a dessert, warm or cold, but in the Netherlands we traditionally eat stewed pears as a side dish for Christmas. I prefer them cold."

  1. Place pears in a saucepan. Add sugar, orange, and cinnamon stick. Pour in red wine to cover pears completely. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer gently until pears are soft and deep red in color, about 2 1/2 hours.
  2. Transfer pears to a serving plate using a slotted spoon. Serve the pears warm or cold.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Pear varieties: In the Netherlands, the Gieser Wildeman pear variety is a good choice for this recipe, and they can sometimes be found in the UK. For a local choice, simply choose the firmest pears you can find. The Williams variety can be a great choice.
  • You can leave pears whole, with the stems on, for a more festive preparation.
  • Editor's Note:
  • Nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of red wine. The actual amount of red wine consumed will vary.
