Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Remove the ghee and honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 375°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Core and medium dice the pears. Zest the lemon to get 1 teaspoon (if you don’t have a zester, use a peeler to remove the yellow rind of the lemon, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Small dice the butter. Place in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.

2 Make the filling:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the ghee on medium until melted. Add the diced pears, currants, honey (kneading the packets before opening), the juice of all 4 lemon wedges, and 1 tablespoon of the flour. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until the pears are coated and slightly softened. Turn off the heat and stir in the lemon zest. Transfer to a large bowl. Refrigerate, uncovered, at least 10 minutes, or until slightly cooled.

Make the crumble:
3 Make the crumble:

In a large bowl, combine the quatre épices, almonds (if using), sugar, remaining flour, and a pinch of salt. Add the chilled butter. Using your fingers, gently work the diced butter into the dry ingredients until large crumbs are formed.
