Directions

In large saucepan, combine water, sugar, lemon rind, lemon juice & cinnamon stick. Bring to boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Peel, halve & core pears. Add pears to boiling syrup. (Pears should be covered in liquid; if not, double the amount of poaching liquid or poach in batches.) Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer gently 15-20 minutes until pears almost tender.
