Expert Tips

I recommended to use Bosc pears for this recipe, because their firm consistency will hold well while boiling. If you don’t like pears, try switching them for apples and follow the same steps.

My grandmother would always prepare Spanish desserts, inspired by the cuisine from my grandfather’s home country. One of my favorite dishes was pears cooked in sweet red wine-the combination is so deliciosa yet different; I want to share it with you all. This simple recipe will surprise the guests at your next dinner or fiesta with its elegant and refined presentation. Let’s cook!

Directions

  • 1 Wash the pears thoroughly and peel; leave the stem intact on top. Next, wash the oranges and cut into quarters leaving the skin on.
  • 2 Place the pears and orange wedges into a deep pot before pouring the entire bottle of sweet red wine on top. Add-in the sugar, cinnamon stick and cloves.
  • 3 Simmer the fruit over medium heat for 15-20 minutes with the pot partially covered. When ready, the syrup should have a light consistency and the pears will have turned a rosy shade of pink.
  • 4 Let cool and refrigerate in a tightly closed container. Serve well chilled and accompany with vanilla ice cream or as desired.
