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

(20-25 minutes).

3. Remove the pears from pan, stir through the orange-blossom water and serve the pears and
syrup with yoghurt and pistachios.
