A question about a recipe: Red-Wine Poached Pears

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?

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.

Use an apple corer and go up from the bottom. Apple corers are just as good for pears!;)

Use a melon baller (or small metal measuring spoon or similar tool) and go in from the bottom.
