Pears are steeped in a mixture of cranberry juice, cinnamon and sugar. The resulting pears are not only pretty pink in colour, but they are also very delicious.
If Bosc pears are unavailable, use conference pears instead.
This showy side salad delites the young and the old alike. I added a bit of powdered cinnomen to the cranberry juice. A vegtable peeler made the peeling process go quickly and a thin slice off the bottom made it so they all could stand proudly and uniquely. Afterwards I added a apple juice to the warm cranberry juice and served the flavorful leftovers chilled... - 21 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very good! This was used as a dessert. Very tasty. I cooked down the leftover liquid and drizzled it over each pear just before serving. Presentation looked lovely and taste was terrific. - 12 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Easy to make and most delicious. I was concerned that the hard pears may not cook up well, but I was pleasantly surprised. I served these pears on a pedastal platter and the presentation was quite delightful. Thanks for the cranberry pear combo. - 18 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
