Abuelita Poire Belle Helene

0 Recipe Reviews |Rate this Recipe| 7 Saves

Pears simmer comfortably in a dry red wine, sugar and cinnamon flavor bath until tender, and then are plated in a delicious chocolate sauce. This Abuelita Poire Belle Helene recipe was inspired by a 19th century French recipe named after an opera. The name means Beautiful Helene Pears. Traditionally it is served with candied violets or sliced almonds but you can use your imagination and garnish with your choice of toppings, if desired.

PEEL pears carefully, leaving stems intact. Cut a thin slice off bottoms of pears so they stand upright. Place in large stockpot. Add wine, water, sugar and cinnamon stick to stockpot.

HEAT mixture to boiling; cover. Reduce heat to low. Cook, basting occasionally, for 20 to 25 minutes or until pears are tender. Remove pears from liquid.

PLACE Abuelita and evaporated milk in small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture boils. Boil, stirring constantly, for 1 minute or until texture is smooth. Divide sauce among 8 plates; place pear in center of each plate. Serve warm or cold.
