    WONDERFUL! Friend helped, not enough directions for a newbie. 10g=Tb sugar, serving is 1/2 pear, pinch nutmeg, 1/8 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp Mace, 1/4 tsp vanilla. Bring water and spices to boil, add pears, poach 12-14 minutes depending on ripeness. Did not peel or 1/2 the pear. - 1/10/11

  • This is an easy recipe that not only tastes great but makes your whole house smell terrific! I wish there were more directions/measurements for how much water to use etc... I found myself looking online for more direction. Overall tasty! - 7/12/11
