Poached Pears In Cinnamon & Red Wine With Ice Cream#Improv

Pears Poached in Red Wine and Cinnamon is a most elegant winter dessert. Paired with ice cream and the fragrant cinnamon flavored Pears are sure to impress your guest.
I had this for the first time in one of my trips to Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital, where we had a Slovenian dinner with a traditional food and dance programme. It was such a wonderful evening with a most delicious traditional food and the dessert was this. So oooo delicious you must try this.

Serve this with vanilla ice cream and butterscotch crunch... fantastic combo... yum yum you will craving for more.

I have used  Madeira Red Wine and it has a perfect color and taste to make this dessert.

2 Pears - firm and not over ripe
2 Cups Red Wine
1 Cinnamon Stick
1 Cup Heaped Granulated Sugar
a Juice of One Lemon
1 Bay leaf

Peel the pears carefully , leaving the stalk intact
Cut a straight slice off the bottom, so that they can stand upright.
In a deep bottom pan, add pears, red wine, lemon juice, sugar , cinnamon stick and bay leaf,
 Bring to a boil, simmer the heat and cook the pears for 30-40 minutes turning  their sides at regular intervals. Take the pan, off the heat, cool it down.
Remove the pears from the pan, using a slotted spoon. 
Keep the pan on heat and cook till the wine is reduced to a syrupy/thick consistency.
When serving, keep the pears on a plate. Drizzle with the wine sauce 
Serve with a scoop of ice cream and butterscotch crunch
