  • About


  • pears - as many as there are people
  • red wine
  • cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons sugar per pear


Peel the pears and pop into a saucepan. Cover with red wine and stick in some cinnamon (a whole stick if you like), the lemon slices and the sugar.

Bring to the boil and cook until soft. Remove the pears to a decorative glass bowl. Continue cooking until the liquid is reduced by one third. Pour over pears and allow to cool. They are better the next day.
