Serves: 4 servings
  • 4 Bosc pears
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 3 Tablespoon butter melted
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  1. Turn oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Peel pears carefully, leaving stem intact. Wash thoroughly if leaving skin on is preferred.
  3. Cut a small slice from the bottom so pears can stand up. Place in shallow baking dish.
  4. Melt butter 20-30 seconds in the microwave and stir in honey and ginger until honey melts and combines with butter.
  5. Drizzle pears with honey mixture, using it all. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil, tear open just enough space for stems to stick through the foil.
  6. Bake in heated oven (may not be fully preheated yet, but that’s okay) for about an hour or until pears are tender. Baste with juices and honey mixture once or twice near the end of the baking time.
  7. Serve whole pears hot, drizzled with honey mixture.
  8. OR chill overnight and slice each pear into eights, drizzle with honey mixture that has been heated in the microwave for 1 minute before serving cold.
