Serves: 4 

  • 4 medium ripe pears
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 5 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 4 tablespoons currants or sultanas
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 150ml apple juice

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Halve and core pears, making sure you core enough to get a nice hollow inside the pear. Brush insides of pears with some of the lemon juice. Place in a greased baking dish, peel side down. If the pears won't sit in the baking dish properly, cut just a bit off the bottom to make the pears sit in the dish without wobbling.
  2. In a bowl, combine the walnuts, currants, honey, brown sugar, lemon zest, cinnamon and remaining lemon juice. Spoon into pears. Dot with butter. Pour apple juice around pears. Bake, uncovered, at 180 C / Gas 6 for 30-40 minutes or until pears are tender, basting several times.
