1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cloves
2 teaspoons cornflour mixed with 4 tablespoons water
6 tablespoons whipped cream
pinch cinnamon for topping
- In a saucepan combine the pear quarters, red wine, water, sugar,
lemon rind, cinnamon and ground cloves. Bring to the boil and
simmer gently for about 5-10 minutes or until pears are tender.
- Combine the cornflour and water together and add to the pan.
Stir until the mulled wine sauce has thickened.

with the whipped cream. Lightly dust with cinnamon and serve.
