Minted Pears with Honey Walnuts

2 t low or no fat margarine
2 T honey
1/2 c walnuts

4 c water
3 bags mint tea
1/2 c honey
12 small pears (preferably Seckel or Forelle)
lemon juice

Butter a small cookie sheet. Melt butter and honey in a medium
skillet over medium heat. Add walnuts. Cook, stirring often for
5 minutes until walnuts start to carmelize. Spread nut mixture on
cookie sheets to cool.

To make minted pears: Bring water to boiling in a large saucepan.
Remove from heat. Add teabags and 1/2 c honey, stirring to dissolve
honey. Cover and steep for 5 minute. Peel pears, leaving stems
intact. Rub each with lemon juice to prevent discoloring.

Remove tea bags from tea. Bring tea to a simmer. Add pears.
Cover and simmer for 10-20 minutes until tender. Time depends on
the ripeness and size of the pears.

Pears may be served hot or cold in poaching syrup. Spoon 3 pears
into each of 4 serving dishes (or one apiece if using larger pears)
Sprinkle with honey walnuts.

Yield: Serves 4
