Red Wine and Aged Vanilla Balsamic Poached Pears with Honey Cinnamon Mascarpone

Ingredients
  

  • 4 medium firm pears such as Bosc or D'Anjou peeled, cored, and halved
  • 1 bottle of fruity red wine Malbec or Pinot
  • 1 cup MTOO Vanilla Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 star anise

  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 container of 8 oz. mascarpone
  • 2 tbsps. Heavy Cream
  • 3 tbsps. Honey
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • In a medium, heavy saucepan mix the red wine, balsamic, sugar, cinnamon stick, and star anise. Bring to a simmer and reduce by 1/3 (about 15 minutes).
  • Place the pear halves in to the hot poaching liquid and simmer for 25 minutes or until the pear halves are vivid red and tender when pierced with a knife tip.
