Stoofperen refers to a Dutch dessert of braised pears which is made from a dutch variety of a cooking pear, called Gieser Wildeman. Gieser Wildeman are inedible when raw (very hard, almost like quinces ), but become ruby-red and meltingly soft when cooked for hours in a sugar syrup. To make Stoofperen, cook the pears in the pan with cinnamon stick, a couple of tablespoons of sugar, some water, and a splash of red wine. Stoofperen is traditionally eaten as a side dish to stewed/braised meat, but now eaten as a dessert, too with rice porridge.
