Wash the pears in cold water, peel, and cut into quarters.

Remove and discard core sections, then trim (round) all sharp edges.

Push 3 or four peppercorns into the surface or each pear section just far enough that they do not fall out.

Cooking

Put sugar and water into a pot and bring to a full boil over high heat.

Reduce heat to medium low and add the pear sections.

Cook for 10 minutes.

Remove from heat and let cool.

Transfer liquid and pear sections to a bowl or jar and refrigerate.

Serve cold (2 or 3 pear sections covered with juice) in small bowls.
