Autumn is upon us! The fresh, crisp smells of fallen leaves, heirloom apple varieties, and pears transport us to visions of curling up by the fire with a warm drink and fuzzy socks. Pears are the new apple- their soft, buttery flesh is amazing eaten raw or baked into a pie or crumble! They also taste great with brie and bacon :)

There are many varieties coming down the line with subtle flavor and texture differences, you'll have to try them all! Pears don't ripen on the tree, as they tend to get mealy. So when you receive your harder than preferred pears, keep them out on the counter for a few days. You know they are ripe when the neck is soft and not the middle (or else it's over-ripe). 

Does your pear have a brown, netted like texture on its skin? That's called russeting! It happens when the fruit is maturing on the tree, but don't let it's rough texture fool you! The taste is wonderful and nutty, give it a try!
