Lest you think the best of the seasonal fruits is behind you, we present to you, the pear! In fact, December is National Pear Month, meaning pears are ripe, sweet, an juicy - ready for you to enjoy. Pears are study fruits, able to withstand some heat, in terms of both spice and temperature. So enjoy them raw but also use them in salads, dishes, and of course dessert. Here are some of our favorite recipes.
As it turns out, pears and tequila make the perfect pair! Poaching pears in tequila is a surprisingly easy affair and a decadent treat. A drizzle of lightly sweetened cactus pear sauce adds a vibrant touch of color perfect for the fun summer season.
