"ok so a company that does business with the hubby gave him 2 big boxes of beautiful pears for Christmas. No idea what to do with them I instantly came to TOH and found this recipe so i made this but I added 1/4 c of honey, some lemon zest and some chopped pecans. hubby loved it! will make again! Would also be fabulous with apples!"
