    mary winecoff's Note:

    Chef Picher Ong's dessert from O Magazine. "Asian pears simmered in wine-spiked, cinnamon-infused black tea". Very simple to do.

Add wine, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, tea leaves, and orange zest; bring to a boil again. Add pears, remove from heat, and cover; transfer to oven.
    2. 2
      Bake pears 1 1/2 hours, turning every half hour until tender but still crisp.
    3. 3
      Remove from oven; let stand until cool enough to handle. Serve warm in cooking liquid.

      Asian pears are just about the only pears I can find this time of year, so I knew I had to try this recipe. The wine and tea syrup is delightfullly spiced. I made this early this morning and served chilled - very good that way and refreshing.

      Just delightful! Wine and tea - two of my favorite drinks. They blend beautifully with spices to make these pears absolutely delectable. This is a very easy, very elegant and delicious recipe. Thanks for posting!
