Total Time:   40 mins
Serves:   4



  • 1 tablespoon whole allspice berries
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
  • 2 teaspoons whole coriander
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 5 1/2 cups Perry, we recommend ‘The Berg’ by Paracombe Premium Perry
  • Rind and 1/4 cup juice from 1 large orange
  • 1 lemon bergamot pear, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 small orange, scrubbed and cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries



  1. Place allspice, peppercorns, cloves, coriander and cinnamon in a medium saucepan . Cook, stirring, over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes.  Stir in Perry, orange rind and juice, bring to simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.  Reduce heat to lowest setting and allow cider to simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl and discard solids.  Return Perry to saucepan and add pear pieces, clementine slices and cranberries.  Simmer medium-low heat until pears are fork tender but still retain their shape and cranberries are plump, about 10 minutes.  Serve.
