      Fantastic! Love the black pepper and used orange zest instead of lemon.

      I had 4 pears perfect for this recipe! They came out beautiful tender but not too much.
      I couldn't expect better.
      I quite forgot the mint, but I think that the recipe would be good as well without next time. The winter is coming and my mint will be finished in some days!
      Thanks a lot for posting this delicious, beautiful, tasty and fascinating reipce!

      Gorgeous recipe! The peppercorns and cloves give a lovely tang to the sweetness of the port. I found that the pears needed 15 minutes to cook - maybe mine were a little unripe to start. I served this beautiful dessert after a curry dinner, and it was a lovely light finish. I served it with pecan mascarpone, which added another texture. Will definitely use this receipt again - thank you!! Tricia in Oz
