We're in May, it’s meant to be autumn, a time when it becomes cooler outside, leaves change, and everything slows down.
This year it’s been an incredibly hot summer & it seems to be never ending. The hot weather has carried on even during autumn. I’m not complaining mind you because I like the hot weather.
Autumn foods are starting to make their way into our supermarket shelves.
One of my favourite cooler months fruits are pears.
I love cooking pears, either stewing them or baking them.
I used Port wine in this recipe but you can use any sweet red wine you like.
Port wine comes from the Portuguese city Porto, & is a sweet wine usually drunk at the end of a meal.
- 4 pears
- 1 1/2 cups Port wine
- 6 tab honey
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 2 tea cinnamon, ground
1. Peel & core the pears.
In a roasting pan add the pears & all the ingredients.
Cover the pan with foil.
Cook the pears for 30 min at 180 degrees, then remove the foil & bake a further 20min.
The pears should be cooked & the juice should have reduced & thickened up
Serve with plain yogurt, cream, or ice cream
