These poached pears have lots of uses. For a lazy Sunday breakfast, top fluffy hotcakes with the poached pears and some whipped cream for a decadent dessert.
Peel and thickly slice the pears.
Place the sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the sliced pears and the cinnamon sticks, and simmer for 15 minutes until the pears are tender.
Cool and serve.
