  • 1.5 cups water

  • 3 cinnamon sticks


  • Add water, pears, sugar, and cinnamon sticks to a large sauce pan over medium heat. Stir gently until sugar has completely dissolved.
  • Allow to set for 25 minutes, gently simmering.
  • Turn heat to low, and simmer another five minutes.
  • Remove from heat, and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Strain the syrup into a glass measuring cup. Discard the pears and cinnamon sticks.
  • Strain the syrup a second time into a large glass bottle that tightly seals.
  • Refrigerate for up to two weeks!


I used comice pears, as they are sweet and delicate. You can use other types of pears, but allow them to slightly dissolve as you are making the syrup!
