Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Oil a baking tray.
Toss the pear halves in a bowl with the lemon juice, cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Place cut side down on prepared baking tray. Brush pears with oil. Roast until caramelised and tender, 40 to 50 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
Meanwhile, mix together 4 tbsp brown sugar, honey or maple syrup, mango, red onion, chilli, garlic, ginger, dried cherries, cider vinegar and cayenne pepper in a non-reactive saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered until liquid thickens to a syrup-like consistency and mangoes look translucent, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
Coarsely chop pears and combine with the mango mixture. Cover and refrigerate 24 hours before serving.
