Pears are a great way to make a common dish unique. Their buttery texture makes them a perfect candidate for sweet and savory dishes alike. They are also a great source of Potassium, Vitamin C and Fiber. As an added benefit, the natural sugars present in pears allow you to satisfy your sweet tooth while steering clear of processed sugar. Read "Tips for Buying and Storing Pears" for more information. Here are some of my favorite SparkRecipes that use pears.
