One of fall’s favorite harvest treats is pears. And, I fetched a couple from the Bosc variety. I allowed same to ripen on top of my counter. As soon as they started to release all the warm and wonderful aromas of fall, I decided to place them in refrigerator for chilling. Also, this move is great for stopping the ripening process.

I couldn’t help myself; so I peeled one and devoured its sweetness with a few pieces of cheddar cheese. Although it was mature, it held its natural formation. As a result, I decided to simmer its counterpart in a cup of left-over Merlot wine.

With just a cup of the rich Merlot and a drizzle  of honey, I allowed pear to simmer under low heat. In approximately 20 minutes, it absorbed all the burgundy, sour/sweet flavors. The sauce reduced and developed a thick and sweet finish. I used some to drizzle around fruit.

After cooling,  pear was placed in refrigerator for chilling. I’ll consume as is or pair same with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. I can’t wait. Salud!

Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
