Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Pears are primarily eaten out of hand, but can be baked, made into liqueurs, vinegar, juice, jam, and jelly. Unripe or hard varieties can be cooked, poached, or baked in tarts and compotes. All pears—but especially comice, the connoisseur’s pear—are often served with platters of fine cheese.
