  3. Simmer water, apple juice, ginger, ginger/honey mixture, lemon peel, pears and green tea until pears are slightly tender and still hold together.
  4. Cool slightly then gently ladle pears into a glass dish slightly covering the fruit with juice. (Reserve the rest of the juice to use in a Winter Pear Salad dressing below*)
