Pear Compote (called Compota de Peras in Spain) is a dessert that is very easy to make. It's served all throughout the various regions of Spain, and is especially common in fall and winter when some of the best pear varieties are in season. In some homes in Spain, it is a traditional to serve this at Christmastime and other special occasions. It can be served warm or at room temperature, which is great because you can save a lot of time by making it in advance and serving it later. I've seen this recipe on various websites, but I got these exact measurements from the Just Spain tourist website. I use Bosc pears because they retain their shape during cooking, but you can use any variety of firm pear.
