  1. To make pistachio creme, puree cream cheese, milk, sorghum and pistachios. Freeze overnight.
  2. When ready to grill, slice the plums and pears in half. With a melon baller, scoop out the pit and pear seeds and create a hollow center.
  3. In a small bowl, combine butter, sorghum and cardamom. Grill plums and pears, basting with butter-sorghum mixture, until they are soft, about 1 hour.
  4. Serve with a spoonful of pistachio creme in the center and an additional drizzle of sorghum, if desired.

Tips & Notes

If you don’t have sorghum on hand, you can substitute with honey.
