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).

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.
