Cut pears in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop out seeds.
In a wide saucepan or braising pan, bring apple juice and Maple Orange Shaker to a low simmer. Add pears halves, cut side down, making sure the apple juice covered the majority of the pears. Cook until fork tender.
In a small saute pan, toast nuts over medium heat until they are fragrant about 40- minutes making sure they do not burn. Add maple syrup and stir to combine. Cook until syrup has thickened slightly, about 2-3 minutes.
Plate pears finishing with a scoop of maple pecans. Top with a drizzle of Cranberry Spice Balsamic and Vanilla Bean Sea Salt.
