Pears are simply poached in sweetened and spiced orange juice for a light, refreshing French-inspired dessert.
This was absolutely delicious. I do not know why, but this recipe called to me to be poured over vanilla ice cream a la banana foster. I am so glad that I did. Although I did not change the recipe any, I did use an apple corer to core the pears (easier in my opinion). This also sliced them. One thing I would recommend though is use either less sugar or unsweetened orange juice. Otherwise it will be very sweet. All in all, a wonderful treat. - 08 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Taste was nice, but pears fell apart. I could not core a pear without cutting it in half, so my pear did not look anything like the photograph. Would not try this for guests without testing it ahead of time.. I won't make this again. - 20 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
