DIY: Pears Roasted in Red Wine

Michelle Slatalla November 28, 2013

Are you planning a Thanksgiving menu? This week we’ll be suggesting a few of the feast-worthy garden-to-table recipes from the past year:

Brooklyn blogger Marie Viljoen’s brand-new cookbook 66 Square Feet: A Delicious Life has arrived on my doorstep just in time.

The pear tree in my backyard is an overachiever this year. I’ve canned pears, pear-walnut bread, and pear butter. Still the fruit keeps coming. Tonight’s dessert: pears roasted in red wine, courtesy of 66 Square Feet: A Delicious Life ($17.97 from Amazon).

Read on for an ingredients list and step-by-step instructions.

Marie Viljoen’s Pears Roasted in Red Wine with Bay Leaves

serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 12 small pears (or 6 large), peeled
  • 2 cups red wine
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 6 bay leaves

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Halve and core the pears and arrange in a heavy pan or roasting dish. Add the wine, sugar, peppercorns, and bay leaves and place in the oven for two hours, occasionally spooning the wine over the pears. 

Serve hot, or cool.
