Pear Honey recipe

Preparation Time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 30 hours

Pears are simmered with pineapple juice and caster sugar in this easy recipe, resulting in a sweet and sticky honey-like substance that is delicious served with muesli, natural yoghurt or baked into cakes.


  • 1.6kg caster sugar
  • 1.3kg pears
  • 250ml natural pineapple juice


  1. Peel, core and dice the pears. Put the pears into a large pot, cover with pineapple juice and stir in the sugar.

  2. Bring to the boil, stirring frequently and then once boiling, turn down to a simmer. Simmer, stirring often, for 2-3 hours or until thick and syrupy.

  3. Ladle into hot sterilised jars, seal and process in a water bath.

You could add extra flavours to the honey if you like - some fresh lemon or lime zest, lemon juice or apply juice would all add a delicious flavour. Recipe makes approximately 60 servings.
