Serves 12

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 285 min.

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe Anjou pears, peeled and quartered
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1-2 tablespoon minced fresh ginger, or ginger juice (see Note)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 4-inch cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon honey

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Stir pears, cider, wine, ginger (or ginger juice) to taste, lemon juice, cinnamon stick and salt in a large saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat, and gently simmer until the pears are very tender, about 20 minutes.

Step 2
