DIRECTIONS

  • Peel the pears leaving stems in tact.
  • Put the honey and lemon juice in a heavy saucepan (one into which the pears will fit snugly) and place over a moderate heat.
  • Stir until the honey has melted then add the water and spices.
  • Keep stirring until the liquid comes to a boil, then turn down the heat and leave to simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add the pears to the liquid and simmer for 20 minutes, turning carefully halfway through and basting pears regularly with the sauce.
  • Leave pears to cool in the syrup before serving.
