  • Pour the wine, orange juice, sugar, Mulled Wine Spice sachets and brandy into a large saucepan. Bring to the boil. Add the pears and simmer for 45-50 minutes, until tender, turning occasionally.

  • Remove the pears from the wine and keep warm. Turn up the heat under the wine mixture and simmer until the sauce has reduced by half.

  • Serve each pear on a plate, drizzled with the sauce and with a little fromage frais.
