Chill in the fridge. 3)Open and drain the Del Monte Pear Halves in Juice into a large bowl. Add the the lemon juice, 25g muscovado sugar and ensure the fruit is covered. 4)Gently melt the butter and pour into a 24cm oven-proof dish then add the remaining 100g sugar and the vanilla seeds and melt over a medium-low heat. 5)Shake the pan gently, but do not stir.
