pears in red wine


  • 300 g sugar
  • Cinnamon c / n
  • Vanilla essence c / n
  • 8 medium pears
  • 1/2 orange skin zest
  • 1 liter of red wine (malbec)


Put the wine, the vanilla, a stick of cinnamon, and the sugar in a stainless steel or enameled saucepan.

Bring to a boil over low heat for a few minutes of boiling.

Meanwhile, peel the pears, and leave the stems on them.

Put them in the wine so that they stand up; for this, the container must be of the appropriate size.

Cook them for 20 minutes or until they are tender but not soft (test by inserting a toothpick).

Let them cool in the wine and remove them to accommodate them in a table dish.

Reduce the liquid to the consistency of thick syrup.

Let it cool and pour it over the pears.

Serve the pears not too cold.
