Pear or Rhubarb Stirabout

This is another very simple dessert based on one from the Failsafe Cookbook (Rhubarb Stirabout), and its a good one for using up pears when they are at the point where they are about to start going brown and floury. ┬áThe original recipe is for Rhubarb stirabout, so I’ve included that here as well.
