They are floury and tasteless, and cheap from the market. That will teach me! Is there anything I can do that will salvage them? I have six, it would feel wrong to throw them out.

muffins (with cinnamon) ... or upsidedown cake with a dark brown sugar and cinnamon (or vanilla) to add flavour...

I can find a recipe if you need one

I think you should try this and tell me if it works with real pears instead of tinned ones!

Peel, them, poach them in white wine & sugar syrup, and then serve them warm with chocolate & cream melted together as a sauce.

I've used this recipe. It seems to default to all metric (3 mg of cinnamon anyone?) but you can switch back and forth using those radio buttons above the recipe.

poach them, slice them and make a blue cheese, walnut and pear salad out of 'em.

mm that's made me hungry now

Might I suggest that if they're horrible, floury and tasteless raw, they will probably be horrible, floury and tasteless cooked?

The compost heap is probably your best bet; yes, it might feel like a waste, but how much worse would it feel if you spent hours cooking them and you still ended up throwing them away because they tasted horrible?
