Ingredients

  • 4 Anjou or Bartlett pears, peeled

Method

  1. Using a melon baller, core each pear through its base so the pears remain whole.

  3. In a saucepan, bring maple water to a boil. Simmer 2-3 minutes.
  4. Stand pears in simmering maple water and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes or until the tip of a knife can be inserted easily.
  5. Remove from heat, let cool, then refrigerate pears in poaching maple water until cooled (about 2 hours).

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
