    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.

    Very good, but I did change it a little. I forgot to put the honey on there (will definitely do that next time), but added cinnamon, ground vanilla, and brown sugar. I also just cut them in half and put a pat of butter in the hole of each pear. Served with homemade vanilla bean whipped cream! Delish!  -  10 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    OK loved this... I made my own lil creation. I did the pear like it stated melted 2 sticks of butter 1/2 cup of brown sugar and lil bit of white and a lil bit of real vanilla heated it up in the microwave. I used 12 pears I picked from the orchard yesterday each pear got 2 big spoon fills over each. put in the oven at 350 for 1/2 hr. Basted each with it's own sauce then mixed some fresh raspberries with some water and sugar in the blender and each got 2 spoon fills back in the oven for 30-45 min. OMG, this was such a hit the whole apartment was like what's that and everyone wanted some, but my biggest person to please is my 13 yr old child. HE LOVED IT ate 3 big pears, once it was cut up....  -  31 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is tasty, but I altered it substantially. I combined honey, white wine, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and a black tea bag and cooked until wine reduced. The added flavor of black tea gives a nice herbal quality to the dish.  -  25 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
