What are some of your favorite “weird” food combinations? I’d love to hear from you in the comments! Most recently, I indulged in some turkey with cranberry sauce on top of it for Thanksgiving. In fact, most of my quirky preferences involve fruit! It’s no secret that I’m a complete sucker for the combination of prosciutto and fruit. I’m equally vocal about my passion for mixing fruit with balsamic vinegar, particularly on salads but even in desserts. These Balsamic-Glazed Prosciutto-Wrapped Pears are the best of both worlds, the ultimate expression of my obsession with savory sweets. With soft slices of ripe pear, a spiral of salty prosciutto, and a thick, syrupy balsamic glaze, this snack is a real riot for your taste buds. It’s also incredibly simple to make because it only has three ingredients! Just make sure to keep an eye on your vinegar while it reduces–this would be a great time to do some dishes or start prepping other elements of your meals for the day. There’s nothing more disappointing than a reduction that went a little bit too far and winds up scorched to the bottom of your pan (I’m speaking from experience here)!
