Made the recipe without any changes, including the raisins. Sliced the pear with a mandolin using the thinnest slicing blade. Loved the aroma.

Served the sauce over sweetened cornbread (recipe #116185) that I had sliced in half . Topped with a frozen yogurt sandwich cut in pieces. (Possibly not the most attractive plating -- however, the taste made up for it! It was delicious).
