Wine Poached Pears

  • 34 Degrees Original Crisps
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ¼ tsp. cardamom
  • 1 (8 oz.) container Mascarpone cheese, for serving
  • 6 oz. bittersweet chocolate shavings, for serving

In a medium saucepan combine all ingredients except pears. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add pears, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, turning pears so all sides become pink. Remove from heat, transfer pears to a bowl and cover with wine mixture. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. To serve, top each crisp with a piece of thinly sliced pear, a dollop of mascarpone and bittersweet chocolate shavings.

To make chocolate shavings, run a vegetable peeler along the edge of a bar of bittersweet chocolate.
