Pear just doesn’t get enough attention this time of year. It’s always all about the apples! Pear sometimes feels like the smart, kind of nerdy kid who wants to fit in, but only gets called on when the popular kids aren’t available for a play date.
Wait. Now I’m imposing my childhood on the poor pears.
I personally love the softer texture and mild, sweet flavor of pears, which lends them to pairing (or pear-ing…get it? …sorry.) quite well with spicy ginger.
