I have these great pears from Harry and David, and I'm having company. The other day I sprinkled some good quality balsamic on one of theme and it was great. It got me thinking that a balsamic reduction drizzled over top quality pear could be really amazing. Is this a good idea? And is there a good recipe for a reduction (preferably without butter, and without added sugar - since the balsamic I have is plenty sweet). Can I just reduce the balsamic by itself?

  1. Yes, just reduce the balsamic on its own, but be VERY careful towards the end, as it will burn to a crisp if you look at it cross-eyed.
