The Pears and What Came of Them

A friend of mine gave me a great big bag of these “wild” pears, or sand pears as I’ve heard them called. I didn’t know what they were but after waiting a week for them to soften up and not getting anywhere much, I Googled them and found out that they don’t ripen the same way as pears from the store. And that they’re particularly good for baking and cooking.

So I set out to try a pear pie recipe and to make “pearsauce” (the pear version of applesauce). In the process I discovered that I was out of white flour, so while I’d not willingly make a whole wheat crust, this is what this pie had. And it turned out rather good, even.


Another pioneering triumph. I love friends who distribute home grown pears so freely.
