Barley malt gives this dish a sweet yet nutty flavor.
You may also dust the pears with spices of your choice. Cinnamon and nutmeg especially lend themselves to fruit-based recipes, but you may prefer to experiment with other flavorings. Be careful, though, until you understand the varieties of taste and how they blend together. Recipes may be as sensitive as chemical formulations, and one false move can spoil the entire dish.
