Spiced Pear Terrine

3 tbsp. sucanat (granulated cane juice)
1/8 tsp. allspice
1 tbsp. butter
¼ cup water
4 pears (Anjou, Bosc or Bartlett)
Juice of one lemon
2 tbsp. honey
Sea salt

Preheat oven to 325° degrees.  Bring sugar (sucanat), allspice, butter and water to a boil. Cook on medium high heat 3-5 minutes until reduced by half.  Coat the bottom of a pie pan with reduced liquid.  Combine lemon, honey and a pinch of sea salt.  Using a mandolin or knife, slice pears very thinly. Arrange pears, one layer at a time, on the bottom of the pie plate. In between each layer of pears brush a little lemon/honey/salt mixture.  Cover and bake one hour.  Remove cover and continue baking 20 minutes.  Let cool 20 minutes.  Carefully remove any liquid from the bottom of the pie pan and reduce on medium heat in a separate sauce pan.  Cover the pie pan with a plate and flip over so the pears are now on the plate.  Drizzle reduced liquid on top of pears. Dust with a light coating of cinnamon.
