A light, sweet dessert recipe for Honey-Roasted Pears

100g honey
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

How to
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).

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 (20-25 minutes).

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