How to make the best Honey Glazed Roasted Pears.
I love different things about each season, but I think that fall has to be my favorite season overall. We have endured those long hot summer days, now to be greeted by the cool crisp autumn nights. It starts to get dark earlier each night signaling the end of summer. Well, Fall is upon us, the weather has changed, the days are getting shorter, and all the lovely produce of summer is bidding a fond farewell……sigh
So, my friends, I would like to share with you, a wonderful autumn dessert, truly a Pear for all seasons, but best served on a chilly October night, my Honey Glazed Roasted Pears. You might enjoy this delicious Pineapple Butter Cake.

Honey Glazed Roasted Pears
- 1 lemon
- 10 medium ripe pears
- 2 Tbsp butter
- ¾ cup sugar
- ¾ cup honey
- 2 ½ cup water or wine
- Preheat oven to 425 set rack towards top of oven.
- Peel lemon zest into 4 long strips
- Peel the pears and leave the stems on, if they have not fallen off
- Slice ¼ inch off the bottom of each pear so pear will stand upright in roasting pan
- Place pears in Roasting Pan and add all other ingredients, you do not need to mix them they will become a syrup while in the oven.
- Bake for about 30 minutes until tops of pears are turning brown.
- Remove from oven, push pears onto their sides and spoon syrup over pears to coat them well and return to oven for 20 minutes.
- Remove from oven and rotate pears to the other side, spoon syrup over pears to coat them well and return to oven for 20 minutes.
- The pears will continue to take on color, Pears tops may become very dark brown, we want them to caramelize.
- Pears are poached when a knife inserted into the center slides in easily and the pear is somewhat soft to the touch.
- Once the pears are poached stand them back up and continue to roast for an additional 45 minutes, every 15 minutes basting the pears with the syrup.
- The pears tops will almost be black and the flesh a shiny deep caramel color.
- Place on a tray to cool, save the caramel sauce, discard the lemon zest.
- Serve your Pear with Vanilla Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce
