INGREDIENTS

  • 4 large firm pears; 1/2 lemon
  • 16 cloves
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • 300 ml (1/2 pint)red wine
  • 2 tablespoons redcurrant jelly
  • 4 orange slices
  • 4 small fresh bay leaves, to decorate

INSTRUCTIONS

1 Peel the pears, leaving the stalks intact. Rub them all over with the lemon half to prevent discoloration.

3 Bring to the boil and simmer gently until the pears are just tender. Leave to cool in the cooking liquid.

4 Put 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid into a small pan with the redcurrant jelly. Bubble briskly for about 1 minute until the jelly has dissolved.

5 Place an orange slice on each of 4 small plates. Drain the pears with a slotted spoon, and sit one on top of each orange slice.

6 Place an orange slice on each of 4 small plates. Drain the pears with a slotted spoon, and sit one on top of each orange slice.
