Malbec-Poached Pears with Ice Cream and Toasted Almonds
45 minutes Plus
Argentinian malbecs are affordable, full-bodied, richly colored red wines with a lush, plump fruitiness. And all of that makes them ideal for poaching fruit. We tried different varieties of pears and liked Bosc best because their texture held up nicely with simmering. Make sure to choose fruits that are ripe, yet firm; they should not yield to pressure. A full teaspoon of salt in the poaching liquid may seem like a lot, but we found that it made the fruit, wine and spice flavors taste full and complex.
