Ingredients

1 cup sugar (more or less depending on taste)
one 1/4 inch slice lemon zest
1/2 cup water
4 cups peeled, cored and sliced pears

Cooking Instructions

1. Bring the sugar and lemon zest to a boil over high heat. Simmer for 5 minutes. This will extract flavor from the peel, dissolve the sugar and make a syrup.

2. Add the fruit and continue to cook for about 5 minutes until just tender.

3. Remove the fruit from the juice and set aside. Discard the lemon zest.

4. Reduce the juice over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes until it becomes syrupy.

5. Pour the reduced syrup over the cooked fruit.

6. Serve warm.

Serving Size: about 1/2 cup
