Ingredients
  Pears 6

  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Cinnamon stick 3 Inch
  Lemon peel 1 Small, piece
  Cognac 2 Tablespoon
Directions

1. Peel and core the pears, cutting each into lengthwise halves. To prevent the pears from darkening, brush them with lemon/juice or drop into water containing a little lemon juice.
2. In a saucepan combine the wine, sugar, cinnamon and lemon peel. Bring to a boil, stirring. Add two or three pear halves at a time and cook gently until tender. Repeat the process until all the pears have been cooked.
3. Cook the syrup until reduced to about one-half the original quantity. Pour over the pears and chill.
4. If desired, add rum before serving. Pour over the pears and ignite at the table.
