Honey-Roast Pears With Orange-Blossom And Yoghurt
|Orange||1 (use juice and thinly peeled rind)|
|Lemon||1 (use juice and thinly peeled rind)|
|Vanilla bean||1 , split and seeds scraped|
|Pears||4 , unpeeled, halved, cores removed (South African Forelle)|
|Orange blossom water||2 Teaspoon (adjust quantity as per taste)|
|Thick plain yogurt||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (for serving)|
|Chopped pistachios||1 Tablespoon (for serving)|
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 the honey mixture and roast, basting occasionally, until tender and beginning to caramelise (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.
