Poached Pears with Osmanthus and Red Dates
Prep time

Total time
Recipe type: Chinese
Serves: Serves 2
  • 2 China fragrant pears – peeled and cored
  • 2 tsp osmanthus flowers
  • 5 – 6 pieces dried red dates – pitted
  • 6 small pieces rock sugar
  • 2 cups water
  1. Place the osmanthus flowers in a stock bag. If you do not have the stock bag, you could drain the liquid towards the end.
  2. Place all the ingredients into a pot and bring to boil.
  3. Simmer for 45 - 60 mins under low heat, until the pears are soft. Alternatively, you could use a slow cooker (like I did) and let it work its magic. I left mine cooking for 3 hours.
  4. Serve warm.
