Pears Poached in Spiced Red Wine

  • Poached pears


  • 4-6 pears

  • Sugar to Taste

  • Red Wine (approx ½ bottle)

  • 100ml Mulling Syrup


1. Peel the pears, leaving the stem (which looks nice) & place in a saucepan that will hold them tightly.

2. Mix the mulling syrup, sugar & red wine in a measuring cup & pour slowly over the pears.

3. Then bring to a simmer for approx 20 minutes or until the pears are tender.

4. Remove the pears to a serving dish, & then reduce the liquid in the pan to become the tasty sauce.

Serve with crème fraîche or cream.
