  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • Peel pears and cut in half down the middle, trying to keep the stems intact. Remove seeds for pears with a small knife. Chop some of the fruit into small cubes (2 tablespoons). Combine cubes of fruit with walnuts and 1 tablespoon honey.
  • Place pear halves into a baking pan. Spread the nut mixture over pears, dividing it evenly among them.
  •  Add the remaining fruit, honey, wine and a few drops of food coloring (optional) to a pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer for 5 minutes until it reduces and thickens slightly.
  • Use a spoon to drizzle syrup over pears, being careful not to move the nut mixture in the process.
  • Cover baking pan loosely with aluminum foil. Bake for 30 minutes, basting pears with syrup 3-4 times.
  • Serve warm or cold. Garnish with mint leaves.
