Dairy Free Eggless
Small firm Pears
of 1/2 a Lemon
Stick of cinnamon
Strip of Orange Zest
fl.oz. Red Wine (check manufacture)
Food Colouring, optional (check ingredients Label)
cream to serve (optional)
Peel the pears but do not core them. Drop them into a bowl of water to which
you have added some lemon juice until they are all
prepared, to prevent them from going brown.
In a pan large enough to hold the pears upright in a single layer, combine the
sugar with 150ml/5 fl. oz. water, the spices and
orange zest. Bring to the boil, stirring until
the sugar has dissolved then add the pears, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
3. Add all but 60ml/2 fl.oz. of the red wine and continue
cooking, uncovered, over a low heat for
15-30 minutes, or until the pears are tender but not disintegrating.
Transfer the pears with a slotted spoon to a serving dish. Reduce the cooking
liquid to the consistency of a light syrup by boiling
rapidly uncovered. Stir in the remaining wine
and colour the syrup a pale pink or deep, rich red with the food colouring
if wished. Spoon the syrup over the pears several times to glaze them.
Allow to cool, then chill thoroughly. Serve with whipped cream.
