Are you making this? 
4 Hard Anjou pears
4 Sprigs mint
10 Whole star anise
3/4 c Sugar
1 Piece ginger, 2" long,
1 ts Lemon juice
750 ml Dry Sauvignon Blanc
1 Piece lemon grass, 6" long,

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



In a medium saucepan simmer the spices, sugar, and wine for 15 minutes. Meanwhile halve, peel and core the pears. Add the pear halves to the infused wine and poach about 20 minutes or until just soft enough to be easily penetrated with a toothpick. Remove saucepan from heat and let the pears cool in the poaching liquid for one hour. Remove the pears with a slotted spoon, cover and refrigerate. Reduce the poaching liquid to 1/2 cup. Strain it and add it to the pears. Chill 2 hours or overnight. Remove the pears, drain them over the bowl and slice the wide end on the bias. Place 2 halves on each serving plate with the stem ends touching and press down lightly to fan them out. Spoon 3 tablespoons of reduced liquid over each serving. Garnish the stem ends with a sprig of mint. >From Taste Show #TS4796 Recipe by: David Rosengarten Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #548 by "Master Harper Gaellon" on Apr 4, 1997
