2.5 cups purple Concord grape juice
1 cinnamon stick
3 strips of orange rind
6 pears, peeled but not cored
In a medium saucepan, combine grape juice, cinnamon stick and orange rind. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and stand pears up in pan. Simmer for about 15 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork. As pears cook occasionally spoon sauce over top of the pears.
Remove pears from pan and refrigerate. Return sauce to a boil and cook down to ½. Once sauce is reduced, remove from heat and chill.
To serve, top pears with sauce and fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt if desired.
