1 cup honey (236ml)

1 lemon, sliced

2” cube ginger, peeled and sliced (30g)

1 stick cinnamon

2 lbs. pears, peeled, cored and quartered (1kg)


Pour the water into a 4-quart (4lt) saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the sugar, honey, half of the lemon slices, ginger and cinnamon and allow to simmer at a rapid boil for 1-2 minutes. Add the quartered pears and simmer uncovered for 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely. Remove and discard the lemon slices.

Cut the remaining lemon slices into smaller pieces. Add 1-2 pieces to a clean glass jar. Add the pears, slices of ginger and cinnamon stick from the saucepan. Add the syrup to the jar. Top the jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator.
