Stewed Pears Recipe

4 firm pears

3/4 C. marsala wine

1 vanilla bean, split

2 T. brown sugar

Peel pears, leaving stems intact. Cut a thin slice from bottoms so pears will stand upright.

Stir together Marsala, vanilla bean and brown sugar in a large saucepan; add pears. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer 45 minutes. Discard bean. Serve pears at room temperature with sauce.

Serves 4.

Note: You may substitute 1 teaspoon vanilla extract for vanilla bean. Add extract after simmering mixture. You could also slice the pears into quarters for serving.
