The smoke is back! Smoking fruit is so much fun and gives the fruit a ripe, sweet and smoky flavor. It’s time for delicious smoked pears with blue cheese and the American favorite maple syrup (if you haven’t visited a maple syrup farm yet, do so, yum…)

Smoked Pears with Blue Cheese, Maple Syrup and Pecans

4 servings

2 pears
125 g blue cheese, locally produced
2-3 tbsp. maple syrup
60 g pecans

Smoke the pears in a smoke box. Put cherry chips or oak chips in the bottom. Split the pears in the middle and put them on the grate in the smoke. Close the lid and put the smoke box on smoldering charcoal or on a hot plate (no gas plate, or the heat will be too concentrated).  They are done when they start to get soft, which takes about 10 minutes. Roast the pecans in a dry pan. Put the pears on small plates , drizzle maple syrup over them, put blue cheese on them and serve with the pecans.
