Pear Cider Reduction with Aged Cheddar Cheese


Servings: 4


2 cups pear cider or sparkling pear juice
1 tablespoon butter
2 ripe pears
8 ounces Wisconsin aged cheddar cheese*, at room temperature
Crusty French bread, sliced

Cooking Directions:

In medium saucepan over medium-high heat, simmer the cider until it reduces to a syrup consistency, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter.

Cut each pear into 6 wedges. Remove cores. Place 3 wedges on each of four small plates. Break (do not cut) cheese into 2-ounce portions and place over the pear wedges. Spoon warm pear syrup over the cheese. Serve with warm crusty French bread.

*Aged 2 years or older is preferred.
