Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups blood orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Zest from one orange (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 4 Bosc pears, peeled, stems intact

Instructions

  1. Combine juice, spices, and zest in a medium-sized saucepan, and bring to a boil over high heat.

  2. Add peeled pears to juice mixture, and reduce to a simmer. Simmer pears for 15 to 20 minutes, spooning juice over pears often. Remove pears from juice, and set aside to cool.
