Spicy Pears in Mulled wine Syrup
A delicious and satisfying recipe to use up any surplus of garden pears  - remember to cook the day before and chill over night, which makes it perfect for dinner parties. Serve with vanilla ice-cream if you want to indulge, however this is a superb low fat course if served with fat free natural yoghurt

Serve 6

Ingredients:

  • 6 small pears
  • 300ml / 1/2 pint full bodied, fruity red wine
  • 6 tbsp thin honey
  • 6 tbsp light muscovado sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Zest and juice of one large orange

To Serve:

  • Ice-cream or creme fraiche
 
Способ приготовления
  • Put all the ingredients except the pears into a medium pan and heat gently until the sugar dissolves
  • Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer
  • Peel the pears leaving the stalks intact. Cut a slice from the bottom of each so that it sits upright and lower into the wine.
  • Add enough water to cover the pears and place a heatproof plate on top to keep them immersed. Poach the pears at a gentle simmer until tender when pierced with a knife, approximately 15-20 minutes.
  • Lift the cooked pears from the pan and lie in a serving dish. Bring the liquid to the boil and bubble until it is reduced to a syrup, approximately 15 - 20 minutes.
  • Strain the syrup over the pears to colour them evenly, then cover with clingfilm and chill overnight.
  • Stand the pears upright in the syrup to serve.
