- In a food processor or blender, purée the pears until smooth with the lemon juice and sugar. Strain.
- In a saucepan, bring the purée and cinnamon stick to a boil. Simmer gently for about 1 hour and 30 minutes or until it reduces by half. Let cool and refrigerate until completely chilled. Serve as a snack with cheese and figs or olives crackers.
