Pears With Roquefort Cheese

What is it about fruit and cheese that makes me crazy.  It is absolutely the perfect dessert for any meal.  If I can make dessert on the grill so much the better.

This time of the year my favorite orchard, Reed Valley Orchard, has Meigeitsu and Korean Giant and maybe some Chojuro.  I don't care they are all wonderful.

Pears With Roquefort Cheese
Serves 6
print recipe

1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup fruit vinegar, If my country grocery has it, piece of cake for you to find.
6 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons apricot preserves
6 pears, ripe but firm
12 ounces Roquefort cheese

Mix the first 4 ingredients.  Do not peel the pears.  Cut the pears in half and remove the cores.  Pour marinade over them.  Let stand for 2 hours.  Preheat the grill to medium-low.  Place the pears on the grill and grill until golden, turning and basting with the marinade.  Serve hot with slices of Roquefort cheese.

I could eat the whole batch!
