Healthy Eating: Prosciutto Wrapped Pears

5 firm ripe pears
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
10 thin slices prosciutto (about 1/4 pound)

Cut pears in half lengthwise. Use a sharp knife to remove to cores. Cut each pear half lengthwise into six wedges. Stir vinegar and brown sugar in a small saucepan and simmer until the mixture reduces by 50 percent and thickens into a syrup, about 20 minutes. Cut each prosciutto slice into six strips. Wrap each pear wedge in a piece of prosciutto. Arrange on a serving platter and drizzle with syrup.
