Strong cheeses match well with the sweet pears.

2 pears such as Bartlett or Bosc, peeled, quartered, cored and coarsely chopped

1 star anise or cinnamon stick

2 1/2 Tbs. fruity white wine such as Riesling

1 Tbs. sugar, or to taste

In a fry pan over medium-low heat, combine the pears, star anise, wine and sugar. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pears are almost falling apart, about 12 minutes. Let cool to warm room temperature.

Serve with your favorite cheese
