RECIPE OF THE MONTH: POACHED PEARS
Peel the pears. Put the rest of the ingredients except the pears into a glass pot and boil for about 5 to 10 minutes. Add the pears to the poaching liquid, standing them upright. When the liquid comes to a boil, lower the heat to a simmer and cover. Simmer for about fifty minutes. Remove into another bowl, immersing them in the wine. Serve with vanilla icecream.
