Hola and Happy Holidays!
The weekend usually means being able to cook more, and experimenting with new recipes.
This dish is very popular in Spain, the name being “Peras al Vino Tinto”, or Pears in Red Wine. It is perfect for Valentine’s Day. The pears take on a beautiful red color, and who doesn’t like red wine?! Plus it has a light and refreshing flavor.
This recipe is also great for dinner guests (not that often this year). You can make as many as you want, and you can also make them ahead of time. I never like cooking while I’m trying to entertain at the same time.
If you are looking for a great dessert recipe, especially for Valentine’s Day, give it a shot and surprise your significant other!
The recipe is for 4, but you can easily adjust the ingredients to make any quantity. The pears should be ripe, but firm. So, not too ripe. Also, make sure the stems are still attached.
I served the pears with vanilla ice cream and a gravy boat with the extra red wine sauce.
