(12 servings)

  • 3 cups red wine
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup water
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 6 pears, peeled, halved and cored

Bring the poaching liquid to a boil and cook until the sugar is dissolved. Add the pears and turn the liquid to a simmer. Baste or gently flip pears to insure even coloring and cook until tender. Let pears cool in the liquid, turning once during the process. Drain and fan the pears before serving. Reduce the poaching liquid to a syrup and spoon over each pear.
