Poached Pears in wine

This is definitely a recipe of European descent, but I found it in an Argentinian cookbook, and made it with Argentinian malbec, so it counts!  Pears poached in red wine syrup with a cinnamon stick (this makes 2 servings).

Poached Pears
1/2 c. red wine (white would work too)
1/4 c. sugar
1 cinnamon stick (can also use a clove and/or a pinch of nutmeg)
2 pears, peeled and cut into wedges

Boil the wine, sugar and spices for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, peel and cut up pears into big wedges. Add the pears to the wine syrup and continue simmering until the pears are tender when pierced with a fork.

You can use any fruit, peaches, apples, etc., or add dried fruit too.
