Pears in White Wine
|White wine||1 Pint, grated|
|Grated lemon rind||1 Tablespoon|
|Lemon juice||1 1⁄2 Teaspoon (1 Dessertspoon)|

Peel whole pears thinly, keeping a good shape and leaving stalks in place.

Liquid should just cover pears; if necessary add more water and wine in equal proportions.
Cover, simmer gently 20 minutes, (depending on ripeness of pears), or until tender.
Strain syrup, pour over pears, refrigerate.
