These sweet, tangy, spiced pickled pears are a cinch to make and are the condiment you didn't know you've been missing!
Combine sugar, salt and seasonings in a medium saucepan. Whisk in the cider vinegar and water.
Bring to a simmer and stir well. Continue to simmer until sugar is completely dissolved.
Place the diced pears in a glass jar or bowl and pour the pickling liquid over them. Be sure they are fully submerged.
Cover and let stand at room temperature until cooled. Place in the refrigerator until ready to use. Allow them to sit in the pickling liquid for at least 4 hours for the best flavor.
Pickled pears can be kept in the refrigerator for up to one week.
