*Test Kitchen Tip:
Instead of using a vanilla bean, you can add 1 teaspoon vanilla to pear liquid after cooking. Stir 1/2 teaspoon vanilla into yogurt mixture.
Prepare as directed through Step 3. Place pears and cooking liquid in an airtight container. Place yogurt mixture in another airtight container. Cover and chill for up to 24 hours. Serve as directed in Step 4.
