Apples (pick a variety that you like; I prefer golden delicious)
Fresh Rosemary (I grow my own)
How To Prepare:
Toss a few tablespoons of butter into a pan and melt it on medium heat. As the butter is melting throw in some rosemary and honey to taste. Once melted put in the apples (make sure they are cored and cut into sections first of course) and mix them into the butter, etc. Turn the heat up a bit and soften the apples. Turn off heat and serve as a side or as a dessert. If using as a dessert one might consider throwing them on top of some gourmet vanilla ice cream.
Edit: I suspect that you could do the same thing with asian pears, but I've never tried it.
