  • Mix the pears, lemon juice and pear juice together in a large saucepan. Heat the ingredients slowly over medium heat until they boil. Stir as needed.
  • Remove the pear mixture from the stove and pour it into a blender. Blend the pears until smooth. Put the pears in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until cold. Set aside.
  • Combine the honey, egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl. Whisk the ingredients until blended.
  • Warm up 1 cup of heavy cream in a small saucepan until it simmers. Remove the cream from the heat and gradually stir it into the egg yolk and honey mixture.
  • Put the batter in a large saucepan and carefully stir the mixture over low heat for about 6 minutes or until it thickens. Do not let the ingredients boil.
