Braised Pears with a Soy Ginger Glaze

This delightful dish can be made 1 to 2 days before serving. Refrigerate in a covered container and re-heat prior to serving. Serve with grilled pork tenderloin or chops. It would also be delicious with roast or grilled chicken.
Ingredients

* 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
* 3 tablespoons soy sauce
* 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
* ½ cup packed golden brown sugar
* ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
* 4 firm but ripe Bartlett or Bosc pears, peeled, halved lengthwise, and cored
* 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar

Directions

In a 10-inch saute pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the soy sauce, ginger, sugar, and cayenne pepper. Stir until the sugar is melted and the ingredients are well combined and then reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the pears, cut side down, and simmer, basting frequently, until the pears are tender when pierced with a knife, about 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the pears to a microwave-safe serving dish. Bring the liquid in the pan back to a slow boil and add the vinegar. Simmer the sauce until it is thick and syrupy, about 3 minutes. Pour the sauce over the pears and serve immediately or set aside until ready to serve. Reheat in the microwave just before serving. Serves 4

Ginger loaf
Makes one cake to cut into about 12 slices
Takes 20 minutes to make and 1 1/4 hours to bake This ginger loaf is more of a tea bread than a sweet cake. And it's oh-so-simple to make.
Ingredients
• 350g plain flour
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
• 3-4 tsp ground ginger
• 8 globes preserved stem ginger in syrup, drained and chopped
• 125g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
• 100g light muscovado sugar
• 225g golden syrup
• 1 egg, beaten
• 75ml milk
Grease and line a 900g loaf tin (a traditional high-sided bread loaf tin) with non-stick baking paper. Preheat the oven to 160°C/fan140°C/. Sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and ground ginger. Set aside. Chop 4 globes of the ginger and add to the flour mixture. Finely slice the remainder and set aside.
Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a small pan. Set aside to cool slightly (this should take about 15 minutes).
Beat the egg and milk together. Stir the cooled syrup into the dry ingredients, followed by the egg and milk and beat well. Spoon into the tin and arrange the remaining ginger overlapping on top. Bake for about 11/4 hours until just firm to the touch. Cool on a wire rack.
