what kind of pears?
Made this dish, impressive, easy and my guests enjoyed it; used Malbec wine which was great; If crushing cloves, suggest straining the wine liquid in a fine-mesh strainer to remove small particles as recipe and video did not suggest this. Next time I make this I will use whole cloves placed in a cheesecloth strainer and will also add a bit more sugar.
