INGREDIENTS


2 cups dry red wine
1 navel orange, quartered
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tbsp. sugar, divided
1 cinnamon stick (4 in. long), broken in half
6 whole cloves
2 Bartlett pears, peeled, halved, and cored
1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup heavy crea
DIRECTION


1. In a 3- to 4-qt. saucepan, combine wine, orange pieces, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the cinnamon, cloves, and 2 cups water and bring to boil over high heat. Add pears, reduce heat to a simmer, and place on top of pears to submerge them in liquid. Cook, covered, until pears are tender when pierced, about 15 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together cheese, cream, and 2 tbsp. sugar until very thick. Serve pear halves in shallow bowls, each with about 1/4 cup of the poaching liquid and a dollop of the sweetened cheese. Save remaining liquid for another use, such as making hot spiced wine, if you like.
