Recipe Tips

  • The wine is optional and is not necessary for the dish to turn out nicely. You can also use red wine instead of white wine. Either option will help infuse even more flavor into the pears.
  • To get more flavor into the pear, try piercing a few holes through the skin. The holes will allow the wine's flavors to penetrate the flesh of the pear.
