Our local newspaper here in Louisiana included some recipes from USA Pears, so, of course, you know I just had to go explore their site. The site is set up to promote the pear growers' product and awareness of the fruit. Since I've been thinking about setting up my own organic orchards I've been visiting a lot of sites like this one.
While their recipe section is not extensive it has some gems like the following recipe well suited for the holiday table when you want something special to wow the family or your guests. If, you are like me, you like to try new recipes or variations on a popular theme - like baked pears. A nice touch is the lemon chamomile sauce that snuggles up to these pears.
Take this new recipe out for a spin! Be sure to visit the vegetarian blog of the creator: Veggie Belly
Note: USA Pears gives a great tip for finding out if your pear is ripe. Press your thumb upon the neck of the pear. If it gives a bit then it is ripe. Pears do not ripen on the tree. Actually, they ripen from the inside out. Place out at room temperature and wait a few days for them to ripen just right.
