- Preheat the oven to 200oC. Peel the pears, cut into quarters and remove the core. Transfer to a baking dish.
- Combine the white sugar, brown sugar, water, ginger, cinnamon and cardamom in a saucepan, stir over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and cook for 3 minutes. Add the orange juice and bring to the boil. Pour over the pears.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until the pears are tender, stir occasionally.
- Serve warm or cold with the yoghurt. Sprinkle with the nuts.
Tip: If leaving pears whole for a stylish alternative, make sure that the pan is deep enough to cover the pears with juice whilst baking.
