Honey Poached Pear


  • 1 cup plain coconut cream
  • ½ cup Manawa honey (we recommend tawari honey)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp ghee or butter
  • 6 medium pears, peeled, cored and halved
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ cup toasted walnuts, chopped (optional)

Serves 6


Combine the chilled coconut cream with half the honey and the cinnamon in a medium bowl. Chill for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 175 °C (380 F). Melt the ghee or butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the pear halves to the pan with the remaining honey and cloves. Stir until pears are well coated.

Transfer the pears to a baking dish, cut-side down, and pour over with the honey from the pan and coat the pears well. Bake for 15 minutes, turning after 8–10 minutes.

To serve, spoon pears into a small bowl and top with a dollop of honey coconut sauce. Sprinkle with walnuts, if using.
