      Title: Spiced pears in cider
 Categories: Desserts, Fruits
      Yield: 6 Servings
 
      6 lg Firm pears
      1 pt Dry cider; strong
           - or red wine
      4 oz Sugar
      1    Vanilla pod; split
      2    Whole cinnamon sticks
      1 ts Corn starch; or arrowroot
           Flaked almonds; toasted
     15 fl Double cream; whipped
 
  Preheat the oven to 250 oF / 130 oC.
  
  Peel the pears neatly, leaving the stalks on, and stand them in a
  large casserole.
  
  In a saucepan bring the cider, sugar, split vanilla pod and cinnamon
  sticks to the boil.
  
  Pour this over the pears, cover the casserole and bake very slowly for
  about 3 hours, turning the pears half-way through the cooking time.
  
  When the pears are cooked, transfer them to a serving bowl and cool.
  
  Pour the liquid into a saucepan, discarding the vanilla pod and
  cinnamon sticks.
  
  Mix the arrowroot with a little cold water to a smooth paste, then
  add to the saucepan with the liquid. Bring to the boil, stirring till
  the mixture has thickened slightly to a syrup.
  
  Pour it over the pears, allow to cool a little, then baste each pear
  with a good coating of the syrup.
  
  Place in the refrigerator to chill thoroughly and serve sprinkled with
  toasted flaked almonds and whipped cream.
