Chardonnay Pears with Citrus Recipe
  • Peel pears, cut in half lengthwise, and remove cores.
  • In a non-reactive pan wide enough to hold pears in a single layer, heat wine and sugar until sugar dissolves. Arrange pears in a single layer, tucking citrus slices between pears, and simmer until pears are tender, about 10 - 15 minutes, depending on size and ripeness.
  • Remove pears to serving plates. Add lavender, if using, and boil wine and citrus until reduced by half or more, to a syrup. Spoon over pears and chill.
