Poached pears with chocolate sauce








 A simple and delicious dessert, the pears are cooked by a while and then bath in a chocolate sauce!

Adapted from  Food Ninemsn.com.au

Ingredients

(4 servings)
6 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 pears peeled
1/2 cup single cream
200 grams dark chocolate melts
double cream to serve (optative)
Preparation method
 
Place the water, sugar and vanilla extract  in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
 Reduce the heat to a simmer and add the pears.
Cover with a piece of wax or baking paper and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of your pears.
Heat the single cream in a saucepan, remove and add the dark chocolate. Stir until the chocolate has melted.
Allow to cool slightly. To serve, spoon some double cream into a bowl, top with a poached pear and the warm chocolate sauce.
To stop the pears from discolouring after peeling, place them in a bowl of water with a juiced lemon.

EN ESPAÑOL
Peras  poché con salsa de chocolate








Para mí este es el típico postre simple y delicioso.
Con Peras y chocolate y de hecho se llevan muy bien, fresco y rico.

Ingredientes

6 tazas de agua
1 1/2 taza de azúcar
2 cucharaditas de extracto de vainilla
4 peras ya peladas pero enteras
1/2 taza de crema
200 gramos de chocolate en barra
para respostería
crema batida para servir (o helado de vainilla)
algunas frutillas para adornar

Preparación

En una olla colocar el agua, la vainilla y el azúcar hasta que hierva, bajar el fuego y colocar las peras por aproximadamente
10 a 15 minutos, la idea es que queden blandas pero no se deshagan, tapar la olla un rato mientras se cocinan.
Aparte en una olla pequeña calentar la crema espesa revolver y agregar el chocolate cuando la crema esté caliente.
Apagar el fuego y revolver el chocolate con la crema, quedará una salsa de chocolate espesa.
Dejar enfriar un poco.
En un bol o plato poner un poco de crema batida, encima la pera cocida y bañar con un poco de chocolate, se puede adornar con unas frutillas.
(para que no se decoloren las peras se pueden colocar en un poco de agua con jugo de limón antes.)
Dejar enfriar antes de servir.
