- 1.5 lemons
- 1.5 oranges
- 1.5 kg stewing pears
- 60 g sugar
- 2 bay leaves
- 4 cloves

Scrub the orange and lemon clean. Peel them with a vegetable peeler.
Then peel the pears, but leave the stalk.
Put the pears in a casserole dish, with the orange and lemon peel. Add the red port, cinnamon sticks, cloves, bay leaves and sugar. Bring this to the boil.
Remove the lid from the casserole dish, turn the hob down to a low heat and stew the pears for 45 mins (leaving the lid off).
Serve the pears hot or lukewarm.
