Honey-Roast Pears With Orange-Blossom And Yoghurt

Ingredients
  Honey 200 Gram
  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)
Directions

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.
