Cooking Recipe

To cook a French cuisine recipe, pears in red wine peel the pears. Do not throw away the peeled peel – it will still be needed. Pour wine into a saucepan, add pear peels and other spices. Mix everything well and put on medium heat. When the liquid boils, reduce heat, add pears and simmer for 15-17 minutes. Gently turn the pears over and cook for another 15 minutes. Pears should be soft, but not fall apart and keep their shape. Turn off the heat and set the pears aside for at least 5-7 hours.

When the pears absorb the color of the wine and the aroma of spices, take them out, strain the wine and put on medium heat. Bring the wine to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until the liquid is halved. Pears in wine put on a serving plate, pour over the prepared wine sauce and garnish with chopped thin strips and grated on fine grated zest with orange or lemon.
