Thank Alton Brown for this delicious recipe. We used our vanilla beans to infuse this elegant pear recipe with even more rich vanilla flavor.

  • | 60 mins
  • | 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 bottle (750-ml) Riesling
  • 1 cup water

  • 1 Rodelle Vanilla Bean, split and scraped, reserve bean pod
  • 4 firm pears, peeled. Leave stems intact.
Uses
Directions
  1. Combine wine, water, Rodelle Vanilla Sugar, and scraped Rodelle Vanilla Bean seeds and pod in a 4-quart saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Core the pears from the bottom and remove a thin slice from the bottom so that the pear will stand level and upright.
  4. Decrease the heat to medium-low and place the pears into the liquid.
  5. Cover and maintain a gentle simmer for 30 minutes, or until the pears are tender, but not falling apart.
  6. Remove the pears to a serving dish, standing them upright, and place in refrigerator.
  7. Remove vanilla bean pod from the saucepan, increase the heat to medium-high and reduce the syrup to approximately 1 cup (about 25-30 minutes). Do not let the syrup turn brown; although the vanilla sugar may introduce some amber coloring.
  8. Remove the syrup to a heatproof container and refrigerate until cool.
  9. To serve, spoon the sauce over the pears.

We would like to make you aware of some minor packaging changes over the next few months. While we have seen a surge in demand for Rodelle Vanilla this year, the recent pandemic has caused many disruptions in the packaging supply chain. At times, you may notice a different color cap or a different type of bottle when you buy our vanilla. Inside the bottle is the same Rodelle Vanilla with the taste and quality that you have come to trust over the years.
