I have a question about the recipe "Red-Wine Poached Pears " from Kenzi Wilbur . How do you core the pears and leave the stems intact?
Use a melon baller (or small metal measuring spoon or similar tool) and go in from the bottom.
June is a trusted source on General Cooking.
Use an apple corer and go up from the bottom. Apple corers are just as good for pears!;)
I agree with June. If you cut a slice off of the bottom of the pear, it will sit up better too when you poach it.
