      Title: Pepper poached pears
 Categories: Desserts, Ceideburg 2
      Yield: 4 Servings
  1 1/2 c  Water
  1 1/2 c  White wine
      1 c  Sugar
      1 tb Black peppercorns
    3/4    Inch piece fresh ginger,
      1    Cinnamon stick
      2    Cloves
    1/8 ts Salt
        pn Crushed red pepper

           -and cored
    1/2 ts Vanilla
  Ran across this recipe in an article in the Chron about weird taste
  combinations and thought it worth passing on. (Never mind the
  comments.) BTW, this is one of the first recipes I entered using
  WordStar 7.0. When I ran the spell checker on it WS didn't recognize
  "quart" or "vinegar" as words!!!!  Amazing.  "Nam Yuey" I can
  understand, but "VINEGAR"?
  These are wonderful served over ice cream or with pound cake. Combine
  the water, wine, sugar, peppercorns, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, salt,
  red pepper and vinegar in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil.
  Add the pears and reduce heat to a simmer.  Cook for 10 minutes,
  until the pears are tender, turning every few minutes so they cook
  When the pears are uniformly tender, remove to a plate. Reduce the
  liquid in the pan by half.  Strain into a bowl. Add the vanilla and
  return the pears to the liquid to cool.
  Serve at room temperature.
  Serves 4.
