Poached Pears with Creme Anglaise

Available in late autumn through early winter, pomegranates have fleshy seeds that provide a tart flavor, brilliant red color and satisfying crunch. Since their season is short, it is a good idea to buy them ahead for holiday dishes; they will keep for weeks in your refrigerator's crisper. Take care when using pomegranates, as the juice can stain. To seed them, fill a large bowl with water. Cut the fruit in half. Holding the fruit underwater, peel off the thick skin and spongy membrane to release the seeds. Let them fall to the bottom of the bowl. Discard the peel and membrane, then drain and reserve the seeds.

Perfect for dinner party
December 18, 2010
I have made this recipe twice. Once for a dinner party, it was beautiful and delicious everyone loved it.
The second time was for my family with the same reaction. Even those who don't care for pears loved the flavor of this dessert. On pear will feed two people.
Recipe can be time consuming IF you try to do it all in one day. Easy in two.

Late Christmas Eve Treat

These were fantastic! The recipe took much longer than I expected, so while everyone was visiting I was stuck in the kitchen. The wait, however, was well worth it.
