  • 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


Step 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.

Step 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.
