Equipment

  • large stock pot

Ingredients

  • 6 fresh pears, halved
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 10 cups water
  • 1 lemon, cut in half
  • 2 star anise optional
  • 2 whole allspice optional
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla you can also use 1 vanilla bean.

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a large stockpot. If you are using a vanilla bean, add it now.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat, cooking for one hour.
  • Gently mash the pears and lower the heat to a simmer and cook another 2 hours.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla if you are using pure or vanilla extract.
  • Strain through a mesh strainer if you don't mind very small pieces of pears (I did this). If you want it to be perfectly clear, strain through cheesecloth.
  • That is it! You can serve it right away, or allow it to cool and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  • Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
