I’ve made cinnamon apples lots and lots of times. They make a great side dish, especially during the months of fall. This was my first time to make cinnamon pears, and I gotta say, I think I stumbled onto something great! In fact, my husband and I prefer the pears to the apples.
These can be made with either canned of fresh pears. I used canned because I thought they’d be a little softer. They were reeeeally good, but I was disappointed that I didn’t get more! The can had several that were broken and not complete halves. So you have a little more control over how they look if they’re fresh and you cut them yourself.
These were the perfect side dish for my Honey Garlic Pork Chops!
