The sweet health snack.
Try poaching some peeled pears in a sweeter white wine such as pinot gris or riesling, along with a good amount of sugar, a cinnamon stick, some lemon or orange peel & a little honey, until the pears are tender... You might want to keep them whole, or slice them lengthways & scoop out the cores.
