  1. Love them. My favorite way to use them is thinly sliced on a ‘white’ pizza: sharp cheeses on a plain crust, covered with thinly sliced pears and a sprinkling of slice red almonds.

  2. When I was visiting my daughter last week, the refrigerator was so full of pears from their two trees. She had juiced some and made frozen pops for the little ones.

  3. Yum! I mostly eat pears raw, but do enjoy them cooked! (But usually someone has to cook them for me, as it’s too much of a hassle for me to do it myself.) 😀

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
