Pears and Prosciutto TNT

we've all had prociutto and melon, here is a new take for me
fresh pears wrapped in prosciutto. The only caution don't warp to early the pears will get soft. Otherwise enjoy with a squeeze of either lemon or lime and enjoy

I can't find good prosciutto around here. It is always labeled "Italian like" or some such thing. Have to find an Italian deli.

Lynda, you could try another type ham. Speck, just plain boiled ham that has been fried in butter lightly salted and cooled might do the trick. I am going to look on line and see what I can find.

One recipe I have tried called for the pears to be halved, peeled and blue cheese stuffed in the centre hole where it has been cored. Wrapped in Procciuto, cover, then bake in a bit of white wine...

I love strawberries and black pepper! Made it into a sorbet once and served it to my Dad, he went crazy for it.

kades
2 pints of strawberries, trimmed washed and quartered
Sprinkled with about 2 tablespoons of sugar and chilled it.

I then mashed the strawberries after they had macerated in the sugar for half the day in the fridge. I did six cranks of the pepper mill and poured it into the ice cream machine (one of the one's where you freeze the bowl) and turned it into sorbet.

Dad replicated it when he went home and it was a hit.
