100 Vegetables (and Fruits): #81. Pears

Apples and Pears poached with bay, cinnamon, cloves, lemon. Yoghurt. Tahini Date Syrup. Crumble from Falastin

Pears are as ubiquitous in Autumn and Winter as stone fruits are in Summer. They are my afternoon snack in these months, and my preference is the brown beurre bosc. The yellow pears of my childhood are no longer the same – mushy when ripe instead of gorgeously juicy with a touch of crispness. I do miss them. But there is now a wide variety of pears from which to choose – red, green, yellow, and brown. Nachi, William Bartlett, Packam, Corella, Anjou, Asian and more.
