These pears can be cooked up on the top rack, or left on the grill for dessert while you eat the main course. They have a slightly sweet flavor and can be served up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 2 large ripe pears

  • 1/2 cup/120 mL white wine
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick (about 2 inches)
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL nutmeg

Steps to Make It

  1. Spray a grill-safe baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Cut the pears in half from the top and remove seeds.

  3. Place the pears face down in a baking dish and cover them with remaining ingredients.

  4. Cover and place on preheated grill for about 15 minutes.

  5. Remove when most the liquid is gone and pears and easily pierced with a fork.
