From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at www.dorothymcnett.com.

3-4 firm, but ripe, pears, peeled and cut
1/2 cup black currant syrup, or maple syrup, or plain sugar syrup
freshly grated nutmeg

gingersnaps or other crispy cookie, to serve with it

Peel and slice the pears, removing the cores. Place in a glass or ceramic bowl, add the syrup, nutmeg, and lemon zest plus about 1 teaspoon of the juice. Cover with a glass or ceramic plate. Microwave on high, using 2 minutes per pear as a guide. Pears should be tender but firm when done. Serve in a beautiful footed glass along with the cookies on the side.
