Ingredients

    3 cups cranberry-raspberry juice1/2 cup dried cranberries2 strips orange zest, 2-inches x 1-inch1/2 tsp. ground allspicePinch of ground cloves (or more, if desired)Two cans (15 oz. each) pear halves in concentrated juice

Directions

1. Place cranberry-raspberry juice, cranberries, zest and spices in a deep saucepan. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook until mixture is reduced to about 2 cups, about 10 to 12 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, drain pears, reserving liquid for another use. (The juice makes a refreshing beverage mixed equally with club soda.) Place pears in a serving bowl. Pour hot liquid over pears. Set aside to cool and let sit 20 minutes at room temperature before serving. (Pears keep 3 to 4 days, refrigerated.)

Makes 5 servings.
