First prepared December 22, 2010. Makes a refreshing starter at breakfast, or a healthy mid-day snack, or a light, natural dessert at supper.
1 large ripe red Bartlett pear
1/2 t sugar
1/8 t ground cinnamon
pinch salt
pinch freshly ground pepper
1 oz mellow red table wine
Mix the wine and seasonings together in a small bowl. Peel, core, and cut the pear into bite-size pieces, and add them to the bowl. Marinate for 30 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serves 2.
