    To me, this was more like pickled pears. I think the recipe called for too much vinegar. I did like the other flavors, so I will definitely try the recipe again with a lesser amount of vinegar.

    Nice pears! I used organic apple cider vinegar and cut both the vinegar and the sugar by about 1/3. Served as a side dish with smoked tenderloin. I will use this recipe again, as the spice blend was lovely with the pears, but perhaps a little too much vinegar bite for my taste....so I will cut the vinegar by about half next time around. Thank you for a wonderful post. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Tag.

    These were just lovely, wanted something to serve in a starter salad with blue cheese and these just hit the spot. If you want to make in smaller quantity use the microwave - still great results. thanks for the recipe will make again and again. Made for tag.
