    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Use a saucepan that has a cover and is large enough to hold the pears upright in a single layer.
    2. 2
      Place the water, sugar, rind, and juice in the saucepan and stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil; stir in the ginger and set aside.
    3. 3
      With a vegetable peeler, peel the pears; if necessary, trim the bottoms a bit so they will stand upright.
    4. 4
      Place the pears in the syrup, cover, and cook over medium heat; baste the pears frequently (a ladle is handy for this since the ginger might get stuck in a bulb baster).
    5. 5
      Do not over cook; test with a cake tester or toothpick; when they pierce easily they are done; start testing after 20 minutes.
    6. 6
      When the pears are just tender, transfer them with a slotted spoon to a shallow bowl.
    7. 7
      Add the marmalade to the syrup and let boil for 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Then add in the cognac, and pour the hot sauce over the pears.
    9. 9
      With a ladle or large spoon baste occasionally until cool; cover and refrigerate.
    10. 10
      Serve each pear standing upright in a compote or dessert bowl, with several spoonfuls of the syrup.

      I'm a huge Maida Heatter fan too, and have made this out of her cookbook -- it's just wonderful. Wonderful. I only wish she had published more cookbooks! Thanks for posting this; everyone should try it!
