Cinnamon and brown sugar poached pears

Preparation Time 15 minutes
Cooking Time 15 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)
* 750ml (3 cups) water
* 200g (1 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
* 1 x 7cm cinnamon stick, roughly broken
* 3 large (about 280g each) just-ripe beurre bosc pears, unpeeled, cored, cut into thick wedges
* Low-fat natural yoghurt, to serve

1. Combine the water, sugar and cinnamon in a large saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Add the pear and stir to combine. Place a disc of non-stick baking paper on the surface of the pear mixture. Cook, covered, for 10-15 minutes or until the pear is tender. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the pear to serving bowls.
2. Increase heat to high and bring the syrup to the boil. Boil, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes or until the syrup thickens slightly.
3. Drizzle the syrup over the pears. Serve immediately with yoghurt.
