“This pear is not to be served for dessert but rather as an elegant accompaniment for the Cornish game hens stuffed with Olive-Rice Stuffing on this site that contains blue cheese and walnuts. In this case, don't use the olives. Serve it as an accompaniment to any blue cheese dish, such as a blue cheese quiche. Easy and tasty! The lavender flowers are optional, but make for an attractive presentation.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Peel pears and scoop out bottom core. Cut a small slice from the bottom so pears will stand upright. Place in a shallow baking dish and set aside.
  3. Melt butter in the microwave or a small saucepan over medium heat. Drizzle pears with melted butter and honey, and sprinkle with ground ginger (and lavender, if using). Cover with aluminum foil with the stems poking through foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour, or until tender. Baste with released juices occasionally during baking, and again just before serving.

Very good, but I did change it a little. I forgot to put the honey on there (will definitely do that next time), but added cinnamon, ground vanilla, and brown sugar. I also just cut them in half and put a pat of butter in the hole of each pear. Served with homemade vanilla bean whipped cream! Delish!

OK loved this... I made my own lil creation. I did the pear like it stated melted 2 sticks of butter 1/2 cup of brown sugar and lil bit of white and a lil bit of real vanilla heated it up in the microwave. I used 12 pears I picked from the orchard yesterday each pear got 2 big spoon fills over each. put in the oven at 350 for 1/2 hr. Basted each with it's own sauce then mixed some fresh raspberries with some water and sugar in the blender and each got 2 spoon fills back in the oven for 30-45 min. OMG, this was such a hit the whole apartment was like what's that and everyone wanted some, but my biggest person to please is my 13 yr old child. HE LOVED IT ate 3 big pears, once it was cut up....

This is tasty, but I altered it substantially. I combined honey, white wine, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and a black tea bag and cooked until wine reduced. The added flavor of black tea gives a nice herbal quality to the dish.
