  • Yield: 4 servings


4 Bosc pears (not too ripe or they will fall apart)
Juice of 1 orange
2tablespoons honey
Dash of Tabasco sauce
Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. Cut the pears into quarters and remove the core from each. Put them on a baking sheet.
  3. Mix the orange juice, honey, Tabasco, a couple of cracks of black pepper, and salt to taste in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
  4. Place the pears under the broiler and broil until they begin to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour the honey mixture over the pears. Put the pears back under the broiler and cook until the liquid has reduced to a thick syrup, about 5 minutes. Remove from the broiler and baste the pears with the reduced syrup.
