  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

In a saucepot, add the sugar and water and bring to a boil to make a syrup. Reduce to a simmer and add the pear halves, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, and lemon grass. Continue to cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until pears are tender, but not falling apart.
