Drunken Pears Recipe

Drunken Pears Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 4

15 ml/1 tbsp light brown sugar

5 ml/1 tsp lemon juice
300 ml red wine

4 ripe pears, peeled


Put the sugar, lemon juice and wine in a saucepan and heat until the sugar dissolves. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each pear so it will stand upright and carefully cut out the cores. Stand the pears in an ovenproof dish and pour the wine over. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated oven at 160C/ 325F/gas mark 3 for 30 minutes, turning once. Serve hot with the wine spooned over, or cool then chill.
