Ingredients


1 cup  sugar
0 1/4 cup  lemon zest
0 1/2 cup  tap water
4 cup  Pears, fresh, sliced
Directions
  1. Bring the sugar, water, and lemon zest to a boil over high heat. Simmer for 5 minutes. This will extract flavor from the peel, dissolve the sugar, and make a syrup.
  2. Add the fruit and continue to cook for about 5 minutes until just tender.
  3. Remove the fruit from the juice and set aside. Discard the lemon zest.
  4. Reduce the juice over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes until it becomes syrupy.
  5. Pour the reduced syrup over the cooked fruit.
  6. Serve warm.
