Cut each pear lengthwise into quarters. Using amelon baller or grapefruit
spoo, create a well in the center of each quarter. If pears are very small,
consider using halves instead of quarters.

In a small bowl, prepare chutney by mixing together lime juice and zest,
red pepper, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar and peanuts. Spoon chutney in
hollowed out section of pear quarters. Add a sprig of mint for garnish.
Place on a serving tray. Makes 12 appetizers.

Helpful hint: Chutney can be prepared up to a week in advance. To avoid
browning, cut pears no earlier than a few hours before serving; then
sprinkle with lime juice.
