Pears are poached in red wine with orange zest, cinnamon and cloves in this light, classic dessert.
Very good. The flavor of the wine can really influence the outcome. I only used cinnamon and cloves. The wine never did become a syrup, but I poured it over the chilled pears anyway. Then I froze some for later. If you prefer softer fruit, simmer for an hour. - 21 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was good. I used a wine that was made by Hand Craft and it was a Petite Syrah. Very fruity wine. I had to boil the wine for a long time to get it to coast the back of a spoon. By the time it was done my stove was a mess. We enjoyed the recipe. Thanks so much for posting. - 25 Feb 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have been looking for this recipe! About ten years ago I made a recipe similar to this and it turned out fantastic. serve the hot pears with the cold syrup and some vanilla ice cream. Awesome! - 03 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
