Poached Pears in Red Wine.

My version of Poached Pears in Red Wine.This makes a lovely desert or when the pears are cold you could slice them and add to a salad.

3 cups red wine
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 drop peppermint
1 slice orange rind
1 Cinnamon stick
1/2 cup Asst berries from freezer (3 berry mix)
Put all ingredients in pot stir over low heat till sugar is dissolved then
Peel pears and place in pot
Simmer for about 35 mins.
Place pears and liquid in a large bowl and in refrigerator to cool. Then,
Remove pears from liquid and enjoy.
I store the liquid in refrigerator and use it to pour over custard,fruit,pancakes etc.

Happy Stitching..........




Almond Bread
I also made some almond bread, it makes a great gift at Christmas, served with coffee for those unexpected visitors or just a treat for yourself.

                                                               and A safe and Happy New Year..
