    Ducky's Note:

    Got this recipe from a "Desserts of Italy" class. This dessert couldn't be easier. The class thought it sounded wierd, pears and balsamic vinegar. However, it was great and made a wonderful dessert since it wasn't too sweet.

      Delicious! I used Anjou pears and let them cook about 15 minutes. They were nicely carmelized and a beautiful golden brown. I accidentally doubled the sugar but it didn't seem to hurt anything. The balsamic is inspired!

      Each batch is getting better. I found that if I de-glaze the pan with the balsamic, I can get a quick, tasty reduction to drizzle over the pears.<br/><br/>I have experimented with the same technique with a Peach and a Banana with good results.
