I’ve always considered pears to be a winter fruit. I adore them, but I can honestly say I’ve never had a strong pear craving in the heat of summer, especially when an Arizona summer tops off at a balmy 125 degrees. I’m sure that our followers in the snowy northeast can relate–I’ve been dreaming of days spent by the pool with grapefruits, peaches, and little swirly drinks with fancy straws. That being said, I felt it necessary to bid this wonderful friend adieu with one last recipe full of warmth, spice, and all the cozy things that come with winter.
This roasted spiced pear recipe is so simple & sweet–thus it’s appeal, right? And the best news, the measurements are all about your preference and taste. So grab a couple of Bosc pears on your next outing and say cheers and farewell to the last 6 weeks of winter…..or so says that friendly little groundhog.
– 2 Bosc pears
