Instructions
  1. Peel the pears but leave the stems attached. Pour the bottle of wine in the pressure cooker.
  2. Add the bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon, ginger and sugar. Mix well to dissolve.
  3. Add the pears to the pressure cooker and close and lock the lid.
  4. Turn the heat on to high and when the pan reaches pressure, lower the heat to the minimum and start counting 5-7 minutes cooking time at high pressure.
  5. When time is up, open the pressure cooker with the Natural release method - move the cooker off the burner and wait for the pressure to come down on its own (about 10 minutes). When cooking time is up count 10 minutes of natural open time. Then, release the rest of the pressure slowly using the valve.
  6. Pull out the pears carefully using tongs or two spoons.
  7. Set the pears aside and put the pressure cooker back on the heat, without the lid, to reduce the cooking liquid to a third of the original amount.
  8. Drizzle syrup on pears, decorate with herbs and serve either room temperature or chilled.
  9. If made ahead-of time, refrigerate pears in the cooking liquid syrup.

    I made these to take to a Christmas dinner, and they were a hit! So good! The wine and spices added the perfect amount of flavor and sweetness. And the pears were perfect. Not mooshy at all. The only downside is this is pretty messy to make. At least that was my experience. When venting, you’re venting steam filled with sugary red wine. You get the idea. And the spices tend to go in every nook and cranny. So, expect to give the pot a thorough take apart cleaning afterwards.

    Fantastic. I used a good quality chianti, I halved the pears so they would be covered by the wine (8 qt IP), 6 min of pressure. After i removed the pears i reduced the sauce on Saute for about 30 minutes. Very yummy!!!!
