Pear Liqueur

Pear Liqueur

½ lb. pears

½ c. sugar syrup                       
pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg
1 clove                                     
1 coriander seed
1 apple (optional)

Slice pears (and apple if desired) and add to other ingredients, adding sugar syrup last.  Stir gently and steep three weeks.  Strain and filter.  Taste and adjust flavor by adding more fruit or sugar syrup if needed.  Steep three to four weeks, then strain.  Ready for use.  Other fruits can be combined with pears to create a different taste.  Yield: 1½ pints
