  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 medium pear, chopped (about 2 cups)


  • Combine water, sugar, and chopped pears in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, lower heat and let simmer for about 15 minutes, until mixture has thickened and pears have softened.
  • Strain the mixture into a bowl, leaving behind the pears (push down on pears with a wooden spoon or spatula to extract as much juice as possible).
  • Keep syrup in bowl or pour into a mason jar and place in fridge to cool completely before using.


  • Syrup should keep for about a month when stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
