Honey Pear Bread

1 (28 ounce) can pear halves
23 cup brown sugar
34 cup honey
12 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 teaspoons orange zest
1 teaspoon lemon zest
34 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)
4 cups sifted flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 14 teaspoons salt


Preheat oven to 350F Drain pear halves, reserving two for garnish and reserve the juice. Finely chop remaining pear halves. Combine brown sugar, honey, oil, pear syrup, eggs, and zests. Stir in chopped pears and nuts. Sift remaining ingredients (flour gets sifted twice I suppose) and add to pear mixture, stirring until just blended. Pour into greased loaf pans. Slice reserved pears and arrange on top of batter. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven, invert to cooling racks and cool. For best flavor let stand overnight. Store wrapped in foil.
