2 cups red wine

1/2 cup wa­ter 1//2 cupp orange juice

2/3 cup sugar 1 cinnna­mon stick

1 star anise 1 tsp vaanilla ex­tract

4 pears


Pour wine, wa­ter, and juice in a saucepan. Add sugar, cin­na­mon stick, star anise, and vanilla ex­tract.

Mix well and bring to a boil while stir­ring. Re­duce the heat slightly and sim­mer for about 10 min­utes.

Mean­while, peel the pears. Or halve them, re­mov­ing the pit. Leav­ing pears whole makes for a bet­ter pre­sen­ta­tion, but halv­ing it is more prac­ti­cal.

Place the pears in a pan, and cover with the sauce. Let them cook 10-12 min­utes on low heat.

Care­fully re­move pears. Serve with cake, whipped cream, ice­cream...or as is, with a driz­zle of the syrup.

The poached pear looks as good as it tastes
