Orange pears

We don't usually do desert, usually Hannah's meal ends with a plate of fresh fruit. But something I've been making lately, a really easy desert of stewed pears. Peel and core a few beurre bosc pears, then gently simmer for a while (1-1 1/2 hours) in enough fresh orange juice to cover. The juice from the pears forms a sumptuously thick sweet sauce. I think this used to be a fancy desert involving butter and sugar and brandy, but just like this it's perfect. Cream or ice-cream optional.
