Ingredients
4 pears
Water
red berry juice or good quality apple juice
8 pieces Baguette (cut 2 inches thick)
Cinnamon
Cinnamon sticks

Start with 4 hard pears any variety. Peel, cut in half and core.

Place in Pan with about one inch of water. Cover tightly and cook for about 10 minutes until toothpick can be inserted easily. By now most of the water should have evaporated from the pan and a thicker liquid will be in the pan with liquid that cooked out from the pears. Add juice to pan (a red berry juice or good quality apple juice is what we usually use). Sprinkle with lots of cinnamon and add cinnamon sticks to the pan. Cook a few minutes more and serve warm with cinnamon stick in the plate and cinnamon sprinkled around the plate for garnish. May add fresh mint on top of pear.

Note: This dish is a wonderful evening dessert when cooked with sherry or bourbon and served warm with vanilla ice cream!
