Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 35 minutes
1 orange and 1 lemon, juice and thinly peeled rind
1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped
4 South African Forelle pears, unpeeled, halved, cores removed
2 tsp orange-blossom water, or to taste
To serve: Thick plain yoghurt & chopped pistachios
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Simmer the honey, juices, rinds, vanilla bean and seeds in a small
saucepan over a medium heat until reduced to a light syrup (8-10 minutes).
2. Place the pears, cut-side up in a roasting pan large enough to fit the pears snugly. Pour over
the honey mixture and roast, basting occasionally, until tender and beginning to caramelise
3. Remove the pears from pan, stir through the orange-blossom water and serve the pears and
syrup with yoghurt and pistachios.
