Poached Pears In Red Wine

Ingredients

2 cups red wine
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 cup sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
8 candied violets for garnish
Fresh mint for garnish

Preparation

1
Peel the pears without removing the stems, and place them in a deep saucepan. In another saucepan, bring the wine, lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon stick, lemon zest, vanilla bean, and enough water to cover the pears to a boil. Pour the liquid over the pears, and simmer slowly until just tender, 10 to 20 minutes.

Remove the pears carefully, and place in a serving dish, stems up. Rapidly boil down the liquid to about 1 cup, and pour over the pears. Garnish each with a candied violet and a sprig of fresh mint. Serve cool or cold.
