Prosciutto Wrapped Pear

3/4 cup balsamic vinegar (will be reduced to 3 tablespoons)
1/4 pound prosciutto, thinly sliced
3 bosc pears, halved and trimmed

1. In a small saucepan, add the balsamic vinegar and place it over medium heat. Bring the vinegar to a simmer and then decrease heat to medium-low. Cook for 5-7 minutes, and until vinegar is a syrupy consistency. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside. Note: balsamic will continue to thicken as it sits. 

2. Using a melon baller, scoop out circular shapes from the pears. Note: If you have a little trouble and some of them aren't perfectly shaped, not to worry; alternatively, you can sandwich two awkward pear balls together and wrap them in the prosciutto. Proceed to wrap the pear balls with the prosciutto and place a skewer in its center.  

3. Using a teaspoon, drop small dollops of balsamic glaze on your serving dish. Place the prosciutto skewers atop the balsamic glaze and serve.
