  • 7 pears
  • 1 bottle of wine ( you can use cooking wine)
  • 5 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom


  1. Peel, half and core the pears, then submerge them in water (this step inhibits oxidation!)
  2. When ready, discard the liquid.
  3. In a large pot, place the pears, wine, sugar and spices. If the pears aren’t covered, add water.
  4. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 15-30min depending on how ripe the fruit is and how cooked you like them!
  5. Remove from liquid and allow to cool*.
  6. Slice the pears thinly lengthwise and roll into a rose shape!
  7. Enjoy warm or cold with whipped citrus ricotta!

*You can reduce the cooking liquid to make a mulled wine syrup and drizzle it on top!
