    Red Wine Poached Pears


    Begin by using a peeler to remove the skins from the pears before cooking.

    In a medium pot combine the red wine, sugar, cinnamon stick, star anise, vanilla extract, orange juice, and orange peel.

    Cook on medium heat to dissolve the sugar for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

    Reduce the liquid to a simmer and add in the pears. Cook for 40 mins, rotating pears throughout the cooking process (this will insure a nice even red color).

    Using a ladle, gently remove pears from the liquid and serve.
