►Combine 2 cups of water, port, and sugar in a 4-quart saucepan. Cook over medium high heat until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
►Cut pears in half lengthwise. Spoon out core and seeds to make a shallow indentation in each half. Place pears in port and bring to a boil. Add cinnamon and cloves. Reduce heat and simmer,
covered, until pears are cooked through so that a knife easily slides into middle, about 30 minutes. Gentle rotate pear halves to ensure port is absorbed evenly.
►Melt butter in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and add pecans and raisins.
►Remove pears from port and place two halves on each plate. Fill pear indentations with a heaping spoonful of nuts and raisins. Finish dish with Stilton crumbles sprinkled on top.
