Pears In Red Wine
Recipe source : Ellice Handy Recipes ( Female Cookbook 1979 )
These pears in red wine are extremely delicious. My youngest son, YS and I like these pears very much. The cookbook recommended that we eat them with ice-cream. Ice-cream! This meant double bliss for both of us, to have chilled pears cooked in delicious red wine sauce topped-up with ice-cream for dessert! This is definitely a treat , not an everyday treat!
We love the unique flavour of the stewed pears cooked with cloves, cinnamon and red wine.
Yes, a very delicious treat for us!

3 slices lemon
1/2 cup white sugar

1. Place wine, lemon slices, cloves, cinnamon and sugar into a saucepan.
