How to make it

  • In medium skillet, bring coffee and brown sugar to a boil.
  • Slip four pear halves into sauce, and bring back to a boil. Turn heat down to slow simmer, and cover pan.
  • After 3 minutes, gently turn pears over with tongs, and continue poaching until tender but not pulpy, 8 to 15 minutes depending on ripeness of pears. Test tenderness with skewer.
  • Remove from heat, and let pears sit in hot poaching liquid, 10 minutes.
  • With slotted spoon or spatula, remove fruit from skillet, and place on two dessert plates. Cover and chill.
  • In small pan, heat honey, curry powder and pepper until honey is hot.
  • Cool honey sauce to room temperature.
  • To serve, drizzle honey sauce over pears
