  • 6 ripe Williams pears
  • 400ml red wine
  • Rind of 1 lemon, in pieces
  • 150g caster sugar
  • Whipped double cream, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ÂșC/Gas 6.
  2. Wash and put the pears upright in a suitably sized ovenproof container. You want them to fit snugly, without too much space between them.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes.
  4. Remove the pears from the oven and pour over the wine. Sprinkle over the lemon rind and most of the sugar, reserving a small amount to spoon on top of the pears. Bake for another 20 minutes, by which time the wine will have reduced and thickened in consistency.
  5. Put the pears in a glass bowl, cover with the red wine syrup and chill.
  6. Divide between 6 plates, and serve with the syrup and some whipped double cream, if desired.
