  1. Drain the liquid from the cans of pears into a saucepan. Add red hot candies to the juice. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the candy has dissolved. Stir in the food coloring, remove from heat, and allow to cool.
  2. Place the pear halves in a deep bowl. Pour the liquid over the pears, cover, and refrigerate overnight. You may want to stir a couple of times to evenly distribute the color. Serve pear halves cold on top of a leaf of lettuce.

Easy to do. The whole family loved it. I've been getting requests for the recipe.

What a tasty, festive addition to our holiday menu...thanks! I have been requested to make these every Christmas. As easy as it was, that won't be too hard a request to fulfill.

My family has been making cinnamon pears for Christmas Eve for decades. My recommendations are to leave the pears in the cinnamon syrup for at least 2 days. This will infuse them with even mor...
