• 4 cups of water
  • 2, 3 inch pieces of ginger cut into slices
  • 1 Asian pear cut into 12 pieces
  • 36 whole peppercorns
  • 2-3 tablespoons honey
  • Pine nuts to garnish


  1. Peel and cut ginger
  2. Add ginger to pot with 3 cups of water, bring to boil for 10 min
  3. Peel and cut pear, place in a cup of cold water to reduce browning
  4. Make three small holes with a toothpick on the outside slice of the pear. Then push three peppercorns into the side of each pear slice.
  5. Reduce heat and add the pear and pepper slices. NOT the water.
  6. Cook on low heat for 3-5 min. Do not cover with a lid - you don't want the pears to be mushy.
  7. Add honey and gently stir in
  8. Remove from heat, and carefully remove the ginger.
  9. Transfer to a serving glass, and let sit out or cool in the fridge.
  10. Cool completely in before serving.
