What to do with pears:
- The best pears for cooking are the firmer varieties such as Bosc, Anjou, or Concorde; their flesh is denser and they hold their shape better.
- Best for eating fresh or juicing are Bartlett, Starkrimson, and Comice as they are juicier; they’re not good for cooking as they over-soften and their flavor is lost when heated.
- Do not freeze fresh pears; the juice and fibers separate when they thaw which is not nice at all. You can freeze cooked pears (such as pear sauce, pear crumble or pear cake).
So now you know why pears are a “Gift of the Gods.”
