1 Combine the wine and sugar in a large pot and heat gently, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.
2 Add the water, vanilla bean and tamarillos. Bring to a simmer and cook for around 20 minutes, until the liquid starts to thicken.
3 Remove the tamarillos and set aside, then turn up the heat and simmer the liquid until it becomes syrupy.
4 Serve the tamarillos with the syrup spooned over, and a blob of cream, yoghurt or ice cream.
If you don’t have a vanilla bean, use a teaspoon of vanilla extract instead.
