Rioja & Allspice Pears
Makes 8 cups (64 FL OZ.)/1.9 L
The Rioja wine gives a dark, intense color to these pears, as well as a robust and pleasing taste. Allspice brings all of the ﬂavors together, making them a spectacular addition to any cheese board.
-Pour the Rioja into a saucepan and add the sugar, allspice, and orange zest. Bring to the boil over a medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the pears to the pan and cook gently for five minutes. Remove the pears with a slotted spoon and pack into glass jars, leaving a ¼-inch/5-mm space at the top.
-Pour the hot Rioja syrup over the fruit and carefully tap the jars on the countertop to get rid of air pockets. Wipe the jars clean and screw on the lids. Seal the jars. The pears will keep for up to one month.
