Pears are such a wonderful fruit…and the best thing about them is that they are great in both sweet and savory dishes.

When poached they can be turned into a wonderful dishes like, Poire Belle Helene (a delicious dessert that they serve in France, poached pears, vanilla ice cream, Chantilly cream, warm chocolate sauce and toasted almonds). They are also great in this savory Pear and Blue Cheese Tart.

And of course pears are fantastic in anything from muffins such as these Pear Raspberry Ricotta Muffins to another one of my favorites (from Joe’s Mommy) – Pear Streusel Muffins (these are also great with apple).

Pears are so fantastic that we sometimes just caramelize pears and serve them over ice cream or when we are feeling a bit fancier we serve them with this Fresh Ginger Cake.

Enjoy – Ciao for now
