Ingredients

  • 2 cups dry red wine 
  • 1 navel orange, quartered 
  • 1 1/2 cups plus sugar
  • 2 T honey
  • 1 cinnamon stick 
  • 6 whole cloves 
  • 2 Bartlett pears, peeled, halved, and cored
  • 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Preparation

In a saucepan, combine wine, orange pieces, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the cinnamon, cloves, and 2 cups of water, bring to boil over high heat. Add pears, reduce heat to a simmer. Cook, covered, until tender, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together cheese, cream and honey until very thick. 

Gently remove pears from liquid. Reduce liquid by about half over medium-high heat for 15 minutes, until liquid is thick and syrupy. Drizzle each pear with syrup and a dollop of cheese mixture and serve.
