Pear Poached in Orange, Cranberry and Wine, with Caramel Glaze

2 large pears, peeled
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 cup dry white wine
1 tsp honey
1 whole orange, cut in half
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 T butter
2T milk

In a medium pot, bring cranberries and orange halves (peels on) to boil in white wine with honey. Reduce to a simmer, place pears in the liquid, and cover. Poach for 20 minutes.

In the meantime, combine the sugar, butter, and milk in a tiny sauce pan and bring to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes.

Remove pears from poaching liquid and place on a plate. Remove orange, bring poaching liquid to a boil, and add the sugar mixture to the poaching liquid. Cook down into a syrup. Spoon cranberries in syrup over pears. Serve either warm or chilled.
