Neighbour has given me pounds and pounds of pears, with an open invitation to go back for more. Any tried and tested recipes for conserves/chutney/anything alcoholic please? Also ideas for puddings beyond crumble/poached in wine, or using in main courses (have a recipe for pork and pears).
Pear tarte tatin usig bought pastry - looks stunning but is a piece of piss. Also, chop up and put in a cake mix (madeira type) with choc chucks. For savouries, chuck slices in a salad with gorgonzola - NOMNOMNOMNOM!
muslimah, that does sound yummy, will definitely puree some. Shoutymamma, also lovely suggestions. WIll try all of them. Keep em coming, especially any which would use up a lot (e.g. chutney/jam type things) as I do have loads and acccess to more!
oh that sounds gorgeous box of tricks. We don't have desserts as a family unless we have people over, so although I now have some amazing pear recipes, I'm not going to get through all the pears on desserts.
thanks Piebald... I pickled some pears last year, I enjoyed them with cold ham, but no-one else did!!! Would love a recipe for something alcoholic - pear wine for example. yes, I know I could google but for things like this prefer the old "tried and tested"...
