1/4 cup Water
Pre-heat oven to 180c / 350f
Add pears to a large baking dish and sprinkle with cinnamon and ginger. Toss the pears and add the water, toss again.
Cover with foil and bake for 20-40 minutes (*SEE NOTE 3), checking and stirring once or twice during cooking time.
The easiest way I find to chop a pear is to half, remove the core using a melon baller and then chop into bite-size pieces (see above image for illustration.) I don't peel the pear but you can if you prefer.
If you don't like cinnamon or ginger then try alternative spices such as cardamom, nutmeg, clove or allspice
The cooking time will vary depending on the ripeness of the pear. Cook until soft (or desired texture.) My pears were unripe and needed 40 mins.
