Ingredients

1 bottle light red wine, such as merlot

1 1/2 cups sugar 

2 cloves 

2 pears (preferably Bosc or Anjou), peeled, halved and cored 

1 stick cinnamon 

1 vanilla bean, split and scraped 

1/2 orange, zested

1 cup vanilla ice cream 

1 cup store-bought granola 

3 fresh mint leaves, torn 

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, add the wine, sugar, cloves, pears, cinnamon, vanilla and orange zest and bring to a simmer. Cut out a circle of parchment paper and fit this on top of the liquid to keep the pears submerged. Simmer the pears until fork-tender, flipping them once, about 40 minutes. Remove the pears from the wine with a slotted spoon and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Continue to reduce the wine mixture on high heat until it becomes syrupy, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and strain.
  2. Top each pear half with some ice cream, granola and a drizzle of the wine reduction. Finish your art with mint and devour it.
