Grilled Pears with Currants

Grilled Pears with Currants

15 Prep Time
5 Cook Time
6 Servings
Try these grilled pears as a substitute for potatoes the next time you are grilling chicken or pork tenderloins. They can also be served for dessert with a scoop of your favorite ice cream.
INGREDIENTS
  • ⅓ cup dried currants
  • ¼ cup apple juice
  • Pinch of freshly ground pepper
  • 6 firm but ripe Anjou USA Pears
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Vegetable oil for brushing on grill
DIRECTIONS

Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas or electric grill on high.

In a small bowl, combine the currants, apple juice, and pepper. Allow the currants to marinate until ready to serve.

Peel the pears and cut them in half lengthwise. Use a paring knife or melon baller to remove the core, leaving a gumball-sized-hole. Place in a shallow dish and brush all over with the melted butter.

When ready to grill, brush the grill grate with vegetable oil. Place the pears, cut side up, in a single layer directly over the hot fire. Cook just until grill marks appear, about 3 minutes. Brush with any butter remaining in the dish, then turn and grill until tender but firm, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Serve warm with a little of the apple juice-soaked currants spooned over the top.
