Pears with Gorgonzola and Pata Negra Canapes

Pears with Gorgonzola and Pata Negra Canapes

To my opinion, Pata Negra also known as “Jamon Iberico” is one of the finest hams in the world: it just melts in the mouth. This recipe compliments the sweetness and nuttiness of this beautiful ham. A real treat for Christmas or parties any times of the year!

Prepare the pear

Cut the two pairs into in 8 wedges each and remove the core.

In a large frying pan, melt the butter, then add the pear wedges and cook them until slightly brown. Then, deglaze the pan with the vinegar and brandy. Cook until the liquid has reduced by half or has become syrupy. Add the mustard and stir gently. Leave the pears aside to cool.
