To serve, cut each pear, lengthwise, into a few slices and fan the slices out over each plate. Serve with your favorite non–dairy vanilla ice cream and garnish with candied nuts.
Make sure the fruit used is still slightly firm, but not soft to the touch. This will allow the poaching liquid to be absorbed without losing the texture of the fruit.
