1.Leaving stems intact, peel, halve and core pears. Combine caster sugar and the water in medium saucepan, stir over high heat, without boiling, until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil; add pears and cinnamon. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, about 25 minutes or until pears are just tender. Remove from heat. Lift pears from syrup to drain; reserve syrup.
