A roundup of the best healthy recipes made with pears to celebrate National Pear Month! Fruity, sweet, and totally perfect for enjoying this delicious seasonal delight!
As December nears its end, I thought it would be fun to take advantage of one last foodie holiday before it comes to a close. Did you know that December is National PEAR Month?! Well, me either!
Frankly, when I think of pears I think of fall and fruit picking. Upon doing some further research, I found out that pears are actually one of the few fruits that are at their peak of freshness during the winter months AND one of the few types of produce that is available nearly all year-long.
When you think about it, pears are pretty versatile…even more so than apples or good ol’ bananas! They are great addition to any meal, come in a variety of shapes, sizes and skin colors, including green, golden, yellow and red, and can even be eaten raw or cooked. I like them as a quick snack…but their possibilities are endless! They’re also great to chop and add to fruit salads, and can also be baked, broiled or grilled.
Today, we’re celebrating all things PEAR! Sure it’s cousin the apple tends to get all the attention, but pears are just as good and deserve their day in the spotlight! With this roundup of 20 Perfect Pear Recipes you’ll find some new sweet and savory ways to incorporate pears into your daily eats. Read on for some foodie inspiration!
