Allow me to introduce you to Jane Brody's Spicy Poached Pears, an all
time favorite around our house especially with my 10 year old son.

Spicy Poached Pears

4 ripe pears, peeled, halved lengthwise, and cored
2 cups cranberry juice
2 TBS sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp grated orange rind (try to use organic)
1/2 tsp grated lemon rind (try to use organic)

Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan.  Bring the liquid to a
boil, reduce the heat, cover the pan, and simmer the pears for about
15 minutes or until they are just tender.  Serve the pears warm, at
room temperature, or chilled.

This is a surprisingly elegant looking dessert, smells divine and
tastes wonderful. A snap to prepare too.
