Poires Au Vin Rouge (Pears in Red Wine)

Poires Au Vin Rouge (Pears in Red Wine)
  • 3 cups red wine
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1 strip orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed (optional)
  • 3 whole black peppercorns (optional)
  • 2 bay leaves (optional)
  • 6 large firm pears


  1. Combine the red wine, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, orange zest, fennel seed, peppercorns, and bay leaves in a large saucepan. Peel the pears, and remove the cores from the bottom, leaving the stems intact; set aside. Bring the wine to a boil over high heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Add the pears, return to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium-low, and continue simmering until tender, about 25 minutes.
  2. Remove the pears from the wine syrup, cover, and refrigerate until cold. Strain the syrup through a mesh sieve, and discard the spices. Simmer the syrup over medium heat until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Refrigerate the syrup until cold.
  3. Once the syrup is cold, pour over the pears, cover, and chill at least 2 hours before serving.
