Toffee Honey Pears

3 tbsp butter

3 tbsp Happy Valley Rewarewa honey

1 tsp vanilla extract

3-4 ripe pears 

This is a quick and easy way to dress up pears.

Heat a medium frying pan and add butter.

let it bubble up, when the fat bubbles start bursting on the surface, give it a stir.

The mixture will eventually change color and go a toffee shade. It will smell slightly caramelized which is fine, but don't let it go too dark.

Remove from heat and add vanilla extract.

Peel, core and slice 3-4 ripe pears depending on size, and slide them into the sauce to warm through gently.

Serve with a good quality ice-cream.

If you prefer make the sauce ahead of time then reheat and add the pears just before serving.

Bananas work well instead of pears.

Serves 4.
