Ingredients

1 lemon

6 brown pears

3/4  cup sugar

3/4 cup honey

2 tbsp butter

300g natural yoghurt

Method

Preheat oven to 170 degrees. Peel two strips of zest from lemon. Peel pears and slice one centimetre off the bottom so they can stand up. Place in pot tightly with lemon zest, sugar, honey, and butter.

Bake pears with lid on for 40 minutes, then turn pears onto one side and bake for 20 minutes. Turn onto other side and bake 10 minutes.

Stand pears up, baste with juices and bake five minutes. Repeat, basting every five minutes for another 20 minutes. Keep roasting until cooked through. Serve with hot caramel sauce from the pot and a spoonful of yoghurt.
