    So good! I had 2 pears left from my canning extravaganza but I still had to make the whole amount of syrup because there wasn't enough to cover the pears in the pot. I put in a heat-proof bowl in the pot to displace some of the liquid and that helped. But as suggested, I kept basting then put them in the narrowest container I had while they chilled in the fridge. DH was very impressed by the "fancy dessert"! made for CQ4

    This is so easy but looks very special and tastes DELICIOUS! I followed recipe for 12 pears-20 minutes cooking the pears plus extra 20 minutes for syrup. One fell over and came out flat on that side so make sure you steady them in your pan. Everyone loved these-a real crowd pleaser! I served w/ cinnamon ice cream but it really wasn't needed. Thank you, PanNan, for a great recipe! Made for the Think Pink Tag Game In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, October 2008.

    This was great. I only did 4 pears, but the same amount of liquid. I also added a couple extra cloves to the sauce. My husband loved these!
