Oh my! How divine! Low calorie and low fat too! Enjoy this light dessert with the flavors of the holiday seasons. Aromatic sweet spices give great taste to these stove-top cooked pears and to the spicy syrup created by Judith Jones for the McCormick 2003 Best Holiday Recipe Contest and tinkered with by me! * Note: If using fresh ginger there is no need to peel unless you want. I just rinse it well and slice it into thin'ish' slices. It is easy to core and peel pears! I have even done it while on the phone with a girlfriend! Core pears. I use a melon baller and start at the bottom and rotate the melon baller into the bottom starting at that little part where the stem comes out of the bottom. Leave the stem at the top! Clean out all the seeds. Then with a vegetable peeler or a paring knife starting at the bottom peel all the skin off leaving the stem. Hope you enjoy this as much as we do!*
