from the kitchen of Sharmagne Leland-St. John

1 lemon, room temperature
8 firm, ripe pears
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 tsp. ginger
1 cup water
1/8 tsp. salt

Squeeze lemon juice into a shallow bowl. Quarter
the pears and remove skin and core. Put pears in
juice to cover all surfaces. Boil water with salt.
Drain the pears, and discard the lemon juice. Add
pears to boiling water; stir in sugar, cinnamon,
nutmeg and ginger. Stirring occasionally, simmer
on low heat until pears are soft (about 12-15 min-
utes. Serve warm or cool. Excellent alone, or with
hard cheese and dark bread. Wonderful if topped with
Swithin Cream.
