Homemade Pear Italian Soda Syrup

3 ripe pears, sliced
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
soda water
For the Cardamom Cream:
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

Place the pears, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until it boils, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes to allow the pears to cook into the sauce. Turn off the heat and let cool.

Whip the cream, powdered sugar, and cardamom in a large bowl until stiff.

Add 2 tablespoons of syrup over ice (add the sugared pears if desired), cover with 1 cup of soda water and stir. Top with the whipped cream and serve immediately. Straws are best.

Makes 2 cups of syrup.
