Red wine poached pears

(Serves 6 for a starter or a light lunch)

6 Pears – peeled and cored with stalks left on
One bottle of red wine
1 cinnamon stick
3 whole cloves
250ml (1 cup) sugar
125ml (1/2 cup) Crumbled blue cheese
60ml (1/4 cup) chopped toasted walnuts
good dollop creme fraiche

Peel and core 6 pears – leave the stalks on the pears for a professional finish and for ease of lifting out of the pan.

A melon-baller is great to scoop out the core from the bottom – this creates a bell-like shape when done.

In a saucepan mix together the red wine, cinnamon sticks, cloves and sugar. Stand the pears upright in the pan then bring to simmer over a medium heat.

Simmer uncovered for about 40 minutes or until the pears are just tender. Arrange the pears on a serving plate and sprinkle blue cheese and walnuts on and around them.

A dollop of creme fraiche either on top or next to the pears adds a finishing touch.
