1 large ripe pear

1-2 thin slices Parma prosciutto (or use Spanish jamon serrano)

1 teaspoon aged balsamic vinegar

Prosciutto-wrapped pears

Peel and core the pear. Cut it into 6 to 8 wedges (depending on the size of the pear). Cut the prosciutto into strips (enough that you have one strip per pear wedge), and wrap each piece of pear with a strip. Place on a small rack over a sheet pan.

Heat the broiler in your oven and place the rack close to the element. Broil the pears for 2 to 4 minutes, until the prosciutto is beginning to crisp up. Turn the pear wedges over and broil the other side for another couple of minutes.

These can be served warm or at room temperature. Just before serving, drizzle with a few drops of the balsamic vinegar.
