Pear in Red Wine Sauce


Serves: 1


1 Pear peeled

150ml Red Wine

110g Castor Sugar

1 Cardamom

1 Clove

3cm Piece of Cinnamon


1. Heat the red wine and sugar until the sugar is fully dissolved and the mix just simmering. Add the rest of the ingredients.

2. Add the pear and poach gently for up to 20 minutes. Keep it in for longer if the pear is not just soft. Remove the
pear, Cardamom, Clove and Cinnamon from the liquor.

3. Reduce the poaching liquor until slightly thickened to form a sauce.



Both light and full bodies red wines can be used.

Choose ripe but firm pears

We like to serve this with a dollop of plain natural yogurt, balance out the richness very well.



About The PaperCup Kitchen

Hi there everyone. I am Nelmarie, but please call me Nel. I, like so many people out there enjoy cooking and baking. Food makes me smile and it makes my heart beat faster. The only place where I know I fit just perfectly, is in the kitchen. I have also enrolled in a few cake decorating courses this year and I think I have met my true love....not mentioning my Hubby now :D. It took me 36 years to find out what I want to do with my life and I can now say the answer is rather simple...Bake and then decorating what I've baked. I have started PaperCup in 2011 whilst we were living in Moscow, Russia. Living the life of an Expat can sometimes get very lonely and the blog has not only brought the whole world into my kitchen but I have met so many gorgeous Foodie Friends. I am so happy that I have taken the plunge and started PaperCup. I am not a brilliant writer, I am not a brilliant chef, I am not a brilliant baker BUT I do invite you into my kitchen, take your shoes of, relax, have a bite to eat and let's have a chat. A little more about me: Nelmarie Rennison, married to Christopher for 6 years, together for 12. Two lovely kiddies, Nicholas 3 1/2 and Allegra just over a year. South African, lived in Russia for two years and now loving living in the UK. Diagnosed with MS in 2000 and never felt better :D I am just as grateful for dust blowing in my eyes as I am for Angels sitting on my shoulders. I love my family, my friends, my life and I am grateful for each new morning. Looking forward to get to know you better xx
