So I recently discovered something INSANELY AMAZING.  I would liken it to that time Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon, if I was being modest.  You know that whole popular way of writing "BEST. THING. EVER."?  It was made for this exact occasion.  Every other time someone wrote it they were lying.  It's possible I'm hyping it up too much, except that I'm really not.  Drum roll.....It's cinnamon mixed with honey!  I know, that sounds simple and not at all like being the first man to walk on the moon.  But what do you even know about it?  Just try it before you get all judgy on me.  Grilled pears.  Cinnamon drizzle.  One girl's life forever changed.  I think I've said enough.   xx- Sarah  {more after the jump}

Grilled Pears with Cinnamon Drizzle

Serves 6 (1/2 pear per serving)



3 ripe bosc pears

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/4 cup chopped pecans

coconut oil

sea salt

maldon salt



- Turn burn grillers to low and preheat to between 350-400 F. (if you don't have a grill, a grill pan will also work!)

- Cut pears in half removing any visible seeds, leaving stems.

- Brush pears with refined coconut oil, sprinkle with sea salt and place on grill at an angle flesh side down

- Cook pears on covered grill for 15 minutes and check to see if the pears have softened and if the pears have a solid grill mark.  If they do not, continue to cook, covered and check every 5 to 10 minutes.   Turn pears on an angle to create another grill mark (this is how you get a criss cross pattern) and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.

- In a small bowl combine 2 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon cinnamon and mix well.

- Let pears rest for a bit after cooking, when they are warm but not HOT, drizzle cinnamon honey over them and top with chopped pecans.

- Sprinkle with maldon salt.

- Serve immediately!

sounds pretty incredible but I will need to judge for myself!

p.s. been laid up in bed for 2 days with a nasty bug, unable to keep food down, perhaps this is not the best time to be reading food blogs...
