Grilled pears are a great way to serve these luscious late summer and fall delights. They are great alongside grilled pork or sausages, but even better when served with ice cream or frozen yogurt for dessert.
- Prepare a grill to medium hot heat (you should be able to hold you hand an inch over the cooking grate for 2 to 3 seconds. Make sure the cooking grate is clean and well oiled.
- Halve pears and scoop out their cores (at least 1 pear per person). You can peel them if you like, but it's not necessary.
- Put pears on a tray or baking sheet. Brush them with a light, neutral flavored oil such as canola oil or grapeseed oil.
- Put pears, cut-side down, on the grill. Cover and cook until grill-marked and heated through, about 10 minutes.
Serve pears hot or warm as a side dish or with ice cream for dessert.
