    2                    hard pears
    1 1/4  cup           dry red wine or grape juice
      1/4  cup           sugar
    1                    cinnamon stick
 
 Peel pear 2/3 way down from stem, leave upper 1/3 peel to stem and trim pear
 bottoms so they
 will sit flat. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in medium saucepan over
 medium heat and stir to
 dissolve sugar. Set pears in pan so they aren't touching and bring liquid to
 boil. Reduce heat to
 medium-low and cover pan. Simmer until pears are soft. When soft, carefully
 remove with
 slotted spoon. Also remove cinnamon stick. Reduce liquid until syrupy. Serve
 pears topped with
 syrup.
