Pear & Goats Cheese Crostini

Day 27...counting down to 30 now!

I love cooking with pears and it's one of my favourite fruits you can cook in a savoury dish.

Pear and cheese is such a great combo...I've added a ginger & balsamic reduction. It's gorgeous and perfect for some outdoor dining! It's still baking hot here in SW France!

You will need:

for 12 crostinis

1 large loaf, sliced & grilled with a little olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon ginger

4 table spoons balsamic vinegar


Goats cheese or cream cheese

The pears I had were ripe, I would have preferred them harder, so I cooked these less before they fell apart.

I cooked a tablespoon of butter with a teaspoon of ginger and some pepper. Then added the pears, with a tablespoon of sugar. I've used sugar because my mum is allergic to honey, but honey is preferred.

Then add the balsamic and pepper.

Take out the pears and add a little water and butter to make the sauce.

I made some homemade olive oil & oregano bread, which is perfect for this.

Grill some goats cheese on a crostini, add a couple of slices of pear and drizzle the reduction over it. I've also made these with cream cheese as my dad doesn't like goats cheese.

You can serve these cold but serve straight away.

I'm off to the pool now!
