INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 Peel and core pears from the bottom, leaving stems intact. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each pear to provide a flat, even bottom. Set aside.
  • 2 Mix remaining ingredients in large saucepan. Bring to boil. Place pears in liquid in saucepan, standing pears with stems pointing up. Reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, 20 to 30 minutes or until pears are tender. Remove pears from saucepan.
  • 3 Cook liquid 15 minutes longer or until reduced to about 3/4 cup. Serve pears drizzled with sauce.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Use a melon baller to core pears by pushing the smaller end of melon baller into the bottom of the pear, then turn it to bore a hole and scoop out the seeds and fibrous core. This will leave the stem intact.
