Pears in Red Wine

2 pears
2 tbsp granadine
1 tpsp salted butter
2 cups dry red wine
  1. Peel and core pears. Half, then half again, then half again. Each pear yields 8 slices.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, thoroughly mix together red wine and granadine.
  3. In a small sauce pan, melt butter on medium heat. Saute pears in butter for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Pour wine and granadine mixture into the sauce pan, and bring the mixture to a slow boil. Let boil for 5 minutes.
  5. Reduce heat to simmer, cover and let simmer for 15-20 minutes until sauce thickens and reduced to 1/2 cup.
  6. Serve pears and wine sauce on top of vanilla ice cream. A spig of mint makes it all pretty.
