DIRECTIONS

  • Place the pears in boiling water for 2 - 3 minutes then remove from the water and place under the cold tap.
  • When the pears are cooled enough to handle, remove the peel, then cut in half.
  • Using an apple corer, remove the center, and pare the stem away.
  • Meanwhile put the sugar, wine, water and cinnamon stick in a pan over a medium heat when it starts to boil.
  • Stir in vanilla extract, then add the pears and simmer slowly until the pears become soft.
  • When the pears have softened remove them from the liquid and place them in a glass bowl.
  • Leave the liquid simmering a bit longer until it reduces then pour over the pears.
  • Can be served warm or chilled.
