In a 8” wide pot, place 1 cup port, 1 cup water,
¼ cup sugar, 2 cloves and a cinnamon stick, broken in three.
Bring to a simmer. Add the pears, cover and cook until just
tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, take off lid and let
pears cool in the port mixture. Store pears in the fridge in the
liquid until needed.
