Pears in Red Wine
Place pears in a saucepan. Add the wine, sugar, cinnamon stick and raisins. Bring to a boil, reduce and let simmer for 5 to 10 minutes until pears are at the desired tenderness. Remove pears and raisins from the syrup. Discard the cinnamon stick. Add the preserves and lemon juice. Bring the syrup to a boil. Let boil for 3 to 5 minutes to melt preserves. Pour sauce over pears and serve.
