From Germany.

It is a fruitcake like bread that is served both hot or cold. The use of the spiced pears is a tradition in German baking.

To make spiced pear juice add 1/8 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1 t lemon juice to 2 c pear juice.

Canned pears in 100% juice can be used by draining and allowing to sit on paper towels before chopping and tossing with spices.
