Featured Ingredient: Comice Pears
Wow, I haven't done a Featured Ingredient post in ages. Sorry 'bout that!
ANYWAY, behold this pretty comice pear. We can not get enough of these in our house lately. Have you ever had one? They are so soft that you can eat them with a spoon. I always peel them because the skin is kind of tough, but OH, that flesh. So sweet and juicy. A comice pear is really great baby food, because it is so soft that you don't need to cook it. Max only has half molars, and he eats them all of the time. Dylan calls them "school pears" because they are as soft and sweet as the canned pears they serve at her school.
I like these plain. I also like them in a salad. My favorite way, though? Sliced comice pear with stinky bleu cheese. You can't get much better than that.
I'm off to prepare a plate right now. Now THAT'S a midnight snack.
