Pears in wine

An interesting dessert for the wine lovers. Got the recipe from ecurry (beautiful pictures too!). You’ll need: 2 firm pears (very firm!), 1.5 cup red wine, 1/2 cup orange juice, 1/2 cup sugar, orange grind and spices like whole cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon.


  1. Peel pears, set aside.
  2. In a pot, bring to boil wine and sugar. Then add all spices and keep on low heat for 10 minutes.
  3. Add pears. They need to be completely sunk in. Boil on low heat until pears are tender (30-40 min).
  4. Remove and put aside. If serving immediately, continue boiling the sauce until it gets syrupy.
  5. Serve with sauce and icecream.
