Sure, you could just eat a ripe pear, but sometimes you need something a little more special. Also, we all need uses for hard pears, as their perfectly ripe moment can come and go so fast, we often miss it, and then must sadly throw the fruit away.

Cooking Tip: An underripe Anjou pear works very well for this, but you can use any firm variety, even Bosc. This is an opportunity to use a special honey, so if you have a gift jar left over from last holiday season, now is the time to pull it
Serving Suggestion: This dish can be made up to 2 days ahead of time and stored, tightly wrapped, in the refrigerator.
