Serving Size:
Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
Adapted from a recipe by Kate Merker in Real Simple magazine
  • 1 1/2 cups Trillium Vineyard's Dolci Baci wine
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 navel orange, quartered
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split (or 1/4 tsp vanilla extract)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 5 cloves
  • 4 ripe pears (any variety), peeled
  1. In a small saucepan, off the heat, combine the wine, the juice from the lemon and orange, 1 of the squeezed orange quarters, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon stick, and cloves.
  2. Add the pears and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, turning the pears occasionally, until they're easily pierced with the tip of a knife, about 25 minutes.  Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pears to individual plates.
  3. Remove and discard the orange quarter and spices.  Return the liquid to a simmer and cook until syrupy and reduced by two-thirds, about 15 minutes, depending on size of pan.  Spoon the sauce over the pears.
