Preheat oven to 400F. Push a clove inside each pear and lay on their sides with cinnamon sticks in an oven-proof dish. Scatter cardamom seeds on top of pears. Gently heat white wine, pure maple syrup and sugar until dissolved and pour over pears, ensuring they are half covered.

Cover pears with foil and poach for approximately 1 hour or until tender, basting occasionally.

Remove cloves, cardamom seeds and cinnamon before serving.
