1 lemon juice
3 cups sugar

1. Combine cinnamon and pear liqueur and leave it for a night. Next day pass through a sieve and pour the extract in a small bowl.
2. Pour pear juice in a big saucepan, add extract and sugar.
3. Peel pears and slice. Sprinkle with lemon juice.
4. Constantly stirring, bring pear juice to a boil and add pear slices. Cook for 2 minutes. Then add gelatinizing agent.
