¼ cup vomFASS Star Date Balsam Vinegar

Directions:  Peel pears, core and slice into ¾ inch slices. Place in shallow skillet, add wine, star date balsam vinegar, sugar, cinnamon and enough water to just cover pears. Simmer on low for about 30- 40 minutes until pears are tender-firm with fork. Drain pears, KEEPING the mulled wine for sipping and a little set aside to store leftover pears.
