  1. 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  2. 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  3. 2 ounces fresh ginger, peeled and cut into 1/8 -by-1-inch strips
  4. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1. In a nonreactive medium saucepan, combine the sugar, vinegar, ginger, cayenne and salt and bring to a boil over moderate heat. Add the pears, cover and cook until they are crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Strain and transfer the pears to a bowl. Return the liquid to the pan.
