 Ingredients List

  • -------------------------------HONEY WALNUTS-------------------------------
  • 2 ts Low or no fat margarine
  • 2 tb Honey
  • 1/2 c Walnuts


4 c Water
3 Bags mint tea
1/2 c Honey
12 sm Pears (preferably Seckel

To make honey walnuts: Butter a small cookie sheet. Melt butter and honey
in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add walnuts. Cook, stirring often for
5 minutes until walnuts start to carmelize. Spread nut mixture on cookie
sheets to cool.

To make minted pears: Bring water to boiling in a large saucepan. Remove
from heat. Add teabags and 1/2 c honey, stirring to dissolve honey. Cover
and steep for 5 minute. Peel pears, leaving stems intact. Rub each with
lemon juice to prevent discoloring.

Remove tea bags from tea. Bring tea to a simmer. Add pears. Cover and
simmer for 10-20 minutes until tender. Time depends on the ripeness and
size of the pears.

To serve: Pears may be served hot or cold in poaching syrup. Spoon 3 pears
into each of 4 serving dishes (or one apiece if using larger pears)
Sprinkle with honey walnuts.
