2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cinnamon stick, 2 inches in length
4 whole cloves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C).

Peel pears, half lengthwise, and core. Arrange pears cut side down in a ceramic baking dish. In a non-metallic bowl, combine pomegrante syrup, lemon juice, cinnamon and cloves. Pour the mixture over the pears and place in preheated oven. Bake for 45 minutes, basting frequently, or until pears are tender.
