Preparation

Slice the ginger into 1/4 inch thick pieces.

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

Push 3 or 4 peppercorns into the surface of each pear section just far enough that they do not fall out.

Cooking

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

Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until liquid reduces by 1/4.

Strain out ginger solids.

Add pear sections and cook for another 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.
