French Fridays with Dorie challenge is for Spiced-Poached Apples (or Pears). I have to admit that I was less than enthusiastic about trying this recipe since John makes the most amazing Riesling Poached Pears quite often. I couldn't understand why a French recipe would call for fruit to be poached in water rather than wine, so we used 2008 Beringer Knight's Valley Alluvium Blanc in place of the water. We also used apples instead of our typical pears. I can't say that we loved this recipe. It was easy enough to prepare on a weeknight, but I don't think we'll make it again.
