Place the pears in a large saucepan. Pour juice into pan. Make sure the pears are completely covered by at least an inch. Turn burner on medium/high heat and bring to a boil. Turn down burner and let the pears simmer in the liquid for 15-25 minutes (depending on the pears) or until a knife is easily inserted.
Remove the pears with a slotted spoon, cover with tin foil to keep the heat in and the pears moist and set aside.
Bring the liquid back to a boil and reduce by half. This should take approximately 15 to 20 minutes. When you have about 5 minutes left, gently toss in the dried fruit and stir occasionally. The fruit will become plump and moist.
When the liquid is reduced by half, turn off the burner. Place two pears on each plate. Drizzle with liquid, spoon on dried fruit and serve.
