Ingredients

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ tsp. dried lavender
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 3 whole pears
  • 1 punnet (125g) of fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup crème fraîche
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ tsp. fleur de sel or good-quality sea salt flakes (optional)

Instructions

  1. Pulse sugar and lavender together in a food processor or spice grinder. Preheat oven to 220°C and butter the inside of a Le Creuset 33cm Rectangular Dish with Lid.
  2. Peel, halve and core the pears, then toss with 3 tablespoons of the lavender sugar. Lay the pears cut side down in the stoneware baking dish, cover with lid and bake for 20-30 minutes until just barely soft. Remove from oven and remove the lid.
  3. Preheat the grill element. Turn pears cut side up and sprinkle each pear with ½ teaspoon lavender sugar, then place 15cm under the grill and cook until caramelised, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Serve pear halves with fresh raspberries, crème fraîche and drizzled with honey. Sprinkle with fleur de sel if desired.
