Directions

Step 1

Peel the pears. Remove any white pith from the back of the orange peel with a sharp knife. In a large saucepan, gently heat the wine and sugar. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the orange peel and the spices, and bring to a boil. Lower in the pears and simmer, turning once or twice, until tender. About 20 minutes.

Step 2

Remove the pot from the heat and let the pears cool in the syrup. Or, to serve warm, remove the pears to plates, cutting a sliver from the bottom so they’ll stand straight. Strain the liquid into a wide saucepan and boil down to a light syrup, about 10 minutes. Spoon over the pears and serve.
