When it comes to sexy food, there are established aphrodisiacs and then there are the foods that, for whatever reason, we as individuals are particularly responsive to. For me, this is it. The pears become lusciously spoon-soft after a long bath in chardonnay and honey, and the balsamic wakes up the taste buds as it brings out the tartness of the raspberry preserves. I don’t make this for people I’m not hoping to make out with.

Ingredients

1/2 bottle 2-Buck Chuck Chardonnay $2
2 Bosc pears $1
1 tbsp honey Pantry
2 tbsp sugar Pantry
3 tbsp raspberry preserves (buy a small jar of store brand) $2 
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar Pantry

Directions

  1. Peel pears and set aside. In a medium pot, whisk together wine and honey. Add pears and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and allow to cook covered for 45 minutes (this is a good time to eat your dinner).
  2. Once pears are cooked to the point that they could be easily pierced by a fork, remove using a slotted spoon and set aside.
  3. Leave wine mixture in pot, turn up heat, bringing the wine to a boil, and whisk in the sugar, raspberry jam, and balsamic vinegar until dissolved. Stir constantly for several minutes until mixture reduces to a syrupy consistency.
  4. Serve pears in small bowls on top of a little pool of the raspberry-balsamic reduction.

Yummmmmm! I made this, along with the pear/sausage sexiness you posted, for v-day for the boyfriend and I. I made it with champagne instead of white wine, since that’s what we were drinking ($6 Andre) and it was sooooo good! He wondered why I only bought 2 pears to cook!

Thanks for the inspiration ;)

Hi, just a quick pre-cooking comment. This one needs more tags. Pears, Raspberry, balsamic, sex, dessert. I had read this one some time ago and had to dig hard to re-find it today.

I love this site. I love your recipes. I appreciate the vast effort you put in and the apparent joy you get out of your work. I love that you are an extremely prolific recipier (yep, made that word up). However, the organizational system could use a makeover to make finding/discovering old recipes easier as I am sure some awesome ones are under-discovered by many of your visitors.

Thanks,
Chris

Classes that don’t directly connect with home inspections are frequently overlooked by personnel. A few of these courses include report writing, communication abilities, business practices, and legalities. Personnel who finalist to carry on the amount with classes such as these can definitely separate themselves using their company personnel who lack this type of training and understanding. Despite the fact that these kinds of classes aren’t proportional to home inspections, they are able to help a home inspector improve the caliber of their service.

You also would intend to avoid dental experts that are also involved in promoting themselves. They would certainly be concentrating too much on the attention as well as could not have the ability to offer you with the appropriate care. You must always study about your dentist before your browse through. Take place the net as well as study reviews on just what people need to claim about the dentist. This way you could find out about the quality of solution or even how much he or she bills.
