Baked pears are a simple yet comforting dessert that you can serve to family and friends. This healthy dessert is sweetened naturally with a touch of honey, a crunch of pecans and lightly flavoured with fresh orange zest. These Cold Snap™ pears are locally grown in Canada and feature a firm yet sweet pear for those who prefer pears with a little bit of bite!

This recipe was developed by Chef Jan-Willem Stulp of Grand Oak Culinary Market for our featured member, Vineland Growers!
