FRESH-PEAR COMPOTE

3/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1-inch piece of vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 ripe but firm pears

Combine water, sugar, and vanilla bean. Bring to boiling point.
Cook, covered, for 5 minutes. While syrup is cooking, peel and
halve pears. Cut out cores. Stand prepared pears in cold water
to prevent darkening. Add pear halves to syrup and cook over low
heat, turning pears once during cooking. Spoon syrup occasionally
over cooking pears. Cooking time depends on variety and ripeness
of the pears: from 5 to 15 minutes. Pears should be just tender.
Do not overcook or they will be mushy. Cool pears in syrup. Serve
as is or with whipped cream, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
