A recipe that is simply done, and cobines different ingredients to an excellent result. Found in "French Cooking in the New World" I use Moselle Valley Reisling; likewise its important that you use pure maple syrup, as corn syrup doesn't get it done!
- Cut pears in half lengthwise, but do not peel them.
- Remove the cores, and place the pears, cut side up, in a nonreactive casserole.
- Fill the hollow within the pear with wine, then pour the maple syrup over the pears. Sprinkle with sugar on top.
- Bake pears in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes, until tender.
