An autumnal recipe using ripe pears and an uncomplicated red wine. This simple dish is very Italian, and has loads of flavour.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
6 ripe williams pears
400ml red wine
1 lemon, rind only, in pieces
150g caster sugar
double cream, whipped, (optional), to serve

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
  2. Wash and put the pears upright in a suitably sized ovenproof container. You want them to fit snugly, without too much space between them.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30–40 minutes.
  4. Remove the pears from the oven and pour over the wine. Sprinkle over the lemon rind and most of the sugar, reserving a small amount to spoon on top of the pears. Bake for another 20 minutes, by which time the wine will have reduced and thickened in consistency.
  5. Put the pears in a glass bowl, cover with the red wine syrup and chill.
  6. Divide between 6 plates and serve with the syrup and some whipped double cream, if desired.
