southern.chef's picture
  Lemon juice 3 Tablespoon
  Ripe pears 6 Medium (Firm)
  Dry italian white wine 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Lemon rind 1⁄2 , cut into pieces
  Cinnamon stick 3 Inch
  Whole cloves 4
  Reduced sugar strawberry spread 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Raspberry liqueur 2 1⁄2 Teaspoon

Combine 1 cup water and lemon juice, set aside.
Peel pears, and cut a thin slice from bottoms so pears stand upright.
Dip pears in lemon water, coating well.
Combine wine, 1/2 cup water, sugar, lemon rind, cinnamon stick, and cloves in a Dutch oven, cover and bring to a boil.
Add pears; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until pears are tender but still hold their shape.
Let pears cool in wine mixture.
Combine strawberry spread and raspberry liqueur in a small saucepan.
Cook over medium heat until strawberry spread melts and sauce is warm. (If sauce is too thin, let stand a few minutes to thicken slightly.)
Drizzle sauce over pears.
Garnish with lemon rind curls, if desired.
