Fall’s other favorite fruit is just as versatile in cooking (move over, apples)
Tender and buttery, crisp and tart: Pears are a mainstay of fall cooking (and eating out of hand). EAT SMARTER has all the inspiration you need to make the most of the fruit throughout the season. For starters, pears make a great addition to muesli and other wholesome breakfast items, and have a particular affinity for blue cheese, whether in a salad or as a topping for flatbread. They also marry well with virtually all meats, including roast venison and filet mignon. With pears around, you’ll want to save room for dessert, including a flaky strudel or delectable upside-down cake. Better yet, poached pears make a simple-yet-refined dessert, especially when drizzled with chocolate sauce. Enjoy!
