   12                    Pears
    1       lb           Honey
    1                    Lemon, juice
   20       fl           Water (plus)
   Preheat oven to 325 F (160 C).
   Peel halve and core the pears, keeping them in water
   which you have acidulated with half the lemon juice.
   Dissolve the honey in the water, add the other half of
   the lemon juice and bring to the boil. Transfer to an
   oven proof dish or pan large enough to keep the pear
   halves in one layer.
   Add the drained pear halves and bring back to the
   boil. Immediately transfer the dish to the oven and
   poach until the pears are really tender. Remove with
   slotted spoon, boil down cooking liquor to a syrup and
   pour over the pears. Leave to cool then chill. Serve
   with the thickest cream you can find.
