yield: 8 SERVINGS prep time: 8 MINUTES cook time: 20 MINUTES total time: 28 MINUTES Ingredients
4 Bosc pears (or any other firm pear, preferably organic)
295 ml (1 1/4 cups) white or red wine, dry
140 جم (3 كوب) سكر
Peel, halve (lengthwise) and core four pears and place cut side down in sauté pan.
Pour wine into pan with the pears. Next, add the sugar.
Put burner on to medium high heat and bring to a simmer, then add the lid.
Cook for a few minutes until the pears are still firm, but cooked (poke with a skewer to test them.) Turn them over and cook for one more minute.
Take the pan off the heat and remove the pears from the liquid in the pan with a large spoon (slotted is best) and set aside.
Put the pan back onto the burner and bring to a strong simmer over medium high heat. Cook until a syrup forms, then remove from heat immediately after consistency is reached.
Place pear halves (one or two) on serving plates and drizzle with the caramelized wine syrup. Decorate as desired, or not at all, and serve right away.
