wildflowersfreshfoodpears

Ingredients:

4 small pears
2 T ghee or butter
1 T honey
1/4 tsp dried ginger
1/4 tsp dried lavender (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut off the bottoms of the pears so they could stand upright without tipping. Then cut around the stem and scoop into the pear with a melon baller to make a hole. Place the pears on a large piece of parchment paper in an oven safe dish.

Melt the butter, honey, ginger and lavender together and pour it over the pears filling up those little wells, then top with the stems and wrap it all up tight and bake for 40 minutes or so, until a knife goes in smoothly.


These are delicious as is but if you’d like to take it up another notch, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream! And if you’d like to reallly notch it up, add a drizzle of espresso balsamic vinegar.
