FFwD - Spiced-poached pears

This week's French Friday with Dorie recipe is Spiced-Poached Pears.  Apples and stone fruit were other options, but I am a sucker for a poached pear, and could not go past these for my fruit choice.

The syrup in which the pears are poached contains orange and lemon zest and juice, sugar, honey, water, star anise and cinnamon. Unfortunately, I found the poaching syrup to be rather tart, and did not enjoy it that much.  I have other sweeter recipes for poached fuit, and I will stick with those in the future.

To see what the other Dorie cooks thought of this recipe, visit the LYL section of the website on Friday, US time.
