    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.

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.
