Cooking time

  1. Using a melon baller, core each pear through its base so the pears remain whole.
  2. Sprinkle with lemon juice and set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, bring maple water to a boil. Simmer 2-3 minutes.
  4. Stand pears in simmering maple water and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes or until the tip of a knife can be inserted easily.
  5. Remove from heat, let cool, then refrigerate pears in poaching maple water until cooled (about 2 hours).
  6. Remove pears. In a saucepan, reduce maple water over high heat until syrupy.
  7. Chill syrup or serve warm over the pears.
