Honeyed Pear Clafouti Tart by Caitlin
This clafouti, a delicious confection of pear, honey and a hint of lemon, will not last long once you take it out of the oven. The quality of the honey will really influence the final product. For this reason, I highly recommend using at least 2 tb artisanal honey, out of the 5 tb the recipe calls for. I used a lovely autumnal honey blend from an organic farm in Quebec, which I bought in Montreal’s Jean Talon Market at a store that stocks food products from all over Quebec called Marche des Saveurs. The selection was incredible, I had so much trouble choosing just one jar to take home! This recipe is a perfect showcase for that really nice flavourful, you splurged at the farmers market jar of honey; in fact the taste of honey in the first bite of this clafouti can almost be overpowering when you have a warm piece, but the flavour seems to fade a little when it is served at room temperature.
