Boiled Pears with Honey Syrup & Ice Cream

Pears are usually a stable at my household this time of the year, and my kids love it. And since I had a platter filled with Bartlett pears on the kitchen table, I decided to have fun with them. There are numerous recipes on the web for poaching pears in syrup that is usually made with vanilla pods, wine, sugar, spices and everything nice. However I chose to simply wrap mine up in foil, boil them in a pot, drizzle them in a honey-mint syrup and served it with ice cream for a light, fun, and child-friendly dessert.
