Quick.easy.cooking's picture
Ingredients
  Firm ripe pears 4 , peeled, cored from the bottom
  Fresh lemon juice 3 Tablespoon
  Lemon rind strip 1 Small
  Ground cloves 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Red wine/Cranberry juice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

Brush pears with lemon juice and set aside.
In saucepan, place remaining juice and all other ingredients.
Cook over high heat 1 minute, then stir and cook an additional minute or until sugar is dissolved.
Stand pears in the mixture and baste them with the sauce.
A bulb baster does this job well.
Cover and simmer 12 minutes, basting every 3 minutes.
Test for doneness; pears should be tender enough to be easily pierced with a fork.
Let pears cool in their liquid, basting occasionally.
Serve chilled or at room temperature.
Nutmeg-laced whipped cream or plain yogurt can be served on the side.
