How to Make It
Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan; cook, uncovered, over medium-low heat 45 minutes or until thickened, stirring often. Remove sauce from heat; cover and chill.
Serve as an accompaniment to pork or turkey, or as a topping over vanilla ice cream, pound cake, or pancakes.
Note: If you can't find cinnamon-flavored pears, use regular canned pear halves and add 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
