Ingredients

  • 1 lemon
  • 10 medium ripe pears
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup honey
  • 2 ½ cup water or wine

Instructions

  • 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
