16 oz water
1 orange, peeled and sliced and 1 Tablespoonsp orange zest
2 Asian pears, peeled, cored, and quartered
1/2 cup sugar
sliced strawberry (optional garnish)

In a medium pot, add zest, ginger, water and bring to a boil. Simmer vigorously for 15 minutes.

Take off heat and add oranges, pears, and sugar, making sure to mix until sugar is dissolved.

If serving warm, let sit for at least an hour, strain, and then reheat as needed.

If serving cold, cool and then refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
