Ingredients You'll Need

1 c. sugar
3 c. red cooking wine

Place everything (except pears) in large pan.

Bring to boil and stir to dissolve the sugar.

Add pear halves; lower heat to simmer and cook 10 minutes.

Cook over low heat until liquid becomes thick and syrupy (about 15 minutes).

Return pears to pan, cut side down.

Cook 5 more minutes, constantly spooning syrup over pears.
