Stoofpeertjes! A typical Dutch way of preparing pears. A lot of people know that this is normally done with red wine, but did you know that it is also tasty when you use white wine? We used both this time! Stoofpeetjes are nice as a dessert or side dish.
Have a look on the bottom of this page to see our dessert suggestions!
Pears (for 8 red and 8 white pears)
|Red wine||250 ml|
|Fresh ginger||3 cm|
Peal the pears and leave the stick on the pear. Heat up the wine and sugar until the sugar is melted. Peal the ginger and add together with 1 cinnamon stick and 2 star anise into the wine. Add the pears and some water and let it cook for 1 hour.
Do the same only use red wine.
Do you want to prepare this without wine, then use:
- White grape juice
- Red berries juice
- Serve the peas with some vanilla ice and fruit.
- Serve with some vanilla cake and ice cream
- You can also put the pears into a cake or on top of a pie.
