Put the apple juice and sugar in a saucepan and heat gently, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Add the cinnamon, lemon rind and ginger. Put the pears in the liquid. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer very gently for 10-15 minutes until almost transparent, basting occasionally. Lift out the pears and place in a serving dish.
