Mmmmm... Cinnamon and orange scented syrup spooned over warm pears and scoops of vanilla ice cream in this lovely dessert.
  • 1/2 bottle Stick Shaker Syrah
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 navel orange, quartered
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 1 Cinnamon stick
  • 5 cloves
  • 4 small ripe pears (any variety), peeled

In a small saucepan, off the heat, combine the wine, the juice from the lemon and orange, 1 of the squeezed orange quarters, the sugar, vanilla, cinnamon stick and cloves.

Add the pears, sip Stick Shaker Syrah, and bring the saucepan to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmeer, uncovered, turning the pears occasionally, until they're easily pierced with the tip of a knife, about 25 minutes.  Sip Stick Shaker Syrah.  Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pears to individual plates.

Remove and discard the orange quarter and spices.  Return the liquid to a simmer and cook until syrupy and reduced by two-thirds, about 15 minutes.  Spoon the suace over the pears.

May add a scoop of icecream.

Sip Stick Shaker Syrah.
