Jasmine Tea Poached Pears

Jasmine Tea takes a trip down Pear lane with this delicate amaretto and balsamic vinegar treatment to poaching pears.

1 can pear halves rinsed (in water or syrup)
1 cup Jasmine Oolong Tea (made with two tsp of tea and brewed for 8 min)
1/3 cup Sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp amaretto
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan.
Bring to a boil then back down to medium or slightly more and simmer for 15 minutes or until the pears soften.
Remove pears and chill (or set aside if you want it hot, it's good both ways)
Strain the remaining sauce and return to a simmer until it starts to thicken into a syrup stir occasionally and check often. Approx - 10 min - 20 min
Divide pears evenly onto two plates and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a slice of angel food cake for the full package.

Drizzle the sauce all over everything and save the leftover sauce for any ice cream that may survives the night, pancakes for breakfast the next morning or even each other. Why not?
