I love pears when they're crisp. I'll eat pears in both sweet and savoury dishes but most often these days will just enjoy eating it in it's purest form. My favourite pears are definitely the nashi and beurre bosc varieties - especially paired with some stinky cheese !
I don't see a big variety of pears at the local grocery store. I used to enjoy the Bartlett pears, but don't see many of those around, so now I buy the William pears. Pears just don't taste delicious and full of juice like they used to. The ones at the store seem very hard, with little taste, so I haven't bought any for a while. Maybe I'll give the new seasons ones a try. They are in season, so they should taste better.
They are nice at the moment Lluxi. I like to leave mine in a bowl to ripen for a while. They are picked while hard because they are so difficult to transport . A ripe pears is a delicate and delicious thing.
I do enjoy pears, though they do not seem as flavoursome as the ones we would get when I was a child. Being in North Qld, many of the pears here sem to have been kept in a cold room for too long, so they cannot ripen naturally! I like my pears to be firm but juicy!! I also enjoy using them in cooking, or just stewed by themselves simply with sugar and cloves.
Yes I like pears. I like their shape and think they look beautiful in a display. I keep most fruit and tomatoes out of the fridge so that their flavour improves, and like to make an attractive arrangement. I wonder if those who find fruit tasteless eat them too early or too cold?
I have some very tasty yellow ones with a delicate blush at the moment that were a pretty shade of green when I bought them and not great to eat. I love Buerre Bosh , the brown ones- sorry, probably misspelled. They look like they should be in a classic still life painting- I intend to do one some time. I like their flavour as well.
Pears are so versatile with sweet or savoury, raw or cooked , juiced or as a sauce. I believe that they have something that is very good for our skin and nails, Silica maybe? I know they are helpfull to keep bowels regular.
