Grilled Pears with Currants


  • 1/3 cup dried currants

  • 1/4 cup apple juice

  • ground black pepper, to taste

  • 6 firm but ripe Anjou pears

  • 4 Tbs unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 Tbs vegetable oil for brushing on grill

Think of grilled pears instead of potatoes the next time you are grilling chicken, or pork tenderloins. Or as a dessert with your favorite ice cream.


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