About this recipe: Pears are peeled and drizzled with honey and butter, before being baked until tender. These baked pears can be served as a dessert and as a side dish. Enjoy!


Serves: 4 

  • 4 Bosc pears
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 50g unsalted butter, melted
  • dash ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon lavender flowers (optional)

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr15min 

  1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
  2. Peel pears and scoop out bottom core. Cut a small slice from the bottom so pears will stand upright. Place in a shallow baking dish and set aside.
  3. Drizzle pears with melted butter and honey, then sprinkle with ground ginger (and lavender, if using). Cover with foil with the stems poking through foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour or until tender. Baste with released juices occasionally during baking and again just before serving.


If Bosc pears are unavailable, use conference pears instead.
