Pack-a-Snack #7

Pear quarters poached in spiced red wine with pecans-in-syrup ice cream topping in a Rubbermaid container.

You do not have to reserve your ice cream toppings for actual ice cream. In fact, the pecan topping goes much better with many other things. If you want to make it yourself rather than buying the stuff in the jar, just make sure to use a very thick syrup, like corn syrup, rather than something thin like maple, or go another route and actually candy the pecans.

This was very satisfying. If I ever end up having poached pears and pecans-in-syrup in my kitchen at the same time again, I'll eat this again happily!
