   into wine. Bring to a simmer and reduce liquid over moderate heat to half
   its volume. Remove spices. Stir the butter into the sauce and season with
   2-3 drops of lemon juice. Keep warm. RICE PUDDING: Bring mild to a boil.

   should be served at room temperature. Arrange on dessert plates. Pour sauce
   around pears and rice-pudding. Garnish with chopped angelica (or other
