At a glance
4 large Bosc (or D'Anjou) pears
4 cups cranberry-raspberry sauce
2 cups Riesling or other sweet white wine
1/4 cup sugar
2 cinnamon sticks, broken into pieces
1 (10 oz.) package frozen raspberries in syrup, thawed
Combine the juice, wine, sugar and cinnamon stick halves in deep saucepan or casserole.
Peel the pears, slice a small piece from the bottom so they’ll stand up in a pan, and core the bottom of the pears using a sharp-serrated edge corer. Stand the pears upright in the pan and cover; bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer the pears for 20-25 minutes, or until they are fork-tender. These can be cooked on a stovetop, on a bbq side burner or in the barbecue grill for a slightly smoky flavor.
Remove and discard the cinnamon sticks.
Process the raspberries in food processor or blender until smooth; strain and discard the seeds. Spoon the raspberry coulis onto serving plates; place pears on top of sauce.
Drizzle the chocolate sauce over pears and then sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar, serve.
