Prep: 5 min Total: 40 min


3 Bosc or other firm variety pears, peeled, cored and halved

1 cup sugar

3 cups water

Add the sugar, wine and water to the inner pot of your rice cooker. For extra flavor you can add a cinnamon stick, a split vanilla bean or star anise to the cooking liquid.

Leaving the lid open, set to Steam for 30 minutes. Let the mixture come to a boil to dissolve sugar, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.
