Ginger Honey Roasted Pears

Pears are one of the few fruits that are vastly better when cooked, in my opinion. Or perhaps it’s just that I never happen to catch them during the five minutes when they are perfectly ripe and taste good raw, I’m not sure which one it is.

Anyway, what I did here was sprinkle bosc pear halves with ground ginger, drizzle honey over them, put a dab of butter on, then roast them in the oven until tender. The result was spectacular, a perfect blend of flavors and a wonderfully soft but not mushy texture. Works equally well as a fancy dessert or an afternoon snack.
