Recipe: Lemon poached pears

Hey everyone!

Tonight I was wanting some kind of dessert, but I didn’t feel like baking or slaving over the stove for a few hours! So here is a quick and easy dessert that I’m sure you will want to try again!

Lemon poached pear recipe:


  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 Bosc pears (halved and cored)


  1. In a medium pot, mix the sugar, water, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Bring the mixture up to a boil and then add the pears.
  2. Turn the heat down so the mixture is just simmering, cover and poach for 3-5 minutes or until pears are soft but still have some texture.
  3. Serve immediately with vanilla ice cream and some lemon zest for garnish
