    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!

    This is a fantastic alternative to the traditional apple pie. It's a great way of making use of pears when in-season. A shortcrust pastry envelopes a sweet, slightly spiced pear filling. Enjoy with whipped cream, ice cream or custard. The perfect autumn treat for any time of the year.

    This comforting pudding is sure to become a family favourite, being perfect for a Sunday lunch on a chilly autumnal day. Pears and blackberries are topped with an orange-scented sponge mixture and baked, then the pudding is turned out upside-down to serve, so the luscious fruit is on top.

    A simple, but delicious recipe for poached pears in red wine. You only need a handful of ingredients. You can eat the pears as a dessert, but in the Netherlands we traditionally eat stewed pears as a side dish for Christmas. I prefer them cold.

    This pear crumble is a nice change from the usual crumble and a deliciously sweet way to use local pears. Serve with custard or ice cream.
