Comice — Available August through March
Is hard, green, and rounder than a Bartlett, but similar in flavor and texture. One of the largest, sweetest and juiciest varieties. Best used fresh in salads, served as an elegant dessert pear, or as an excellent accompaniment with cheese.
What can I say? Pears, pears, pears...that's what I dealt with today: Pears! I told you they had to be picked yesterday. Then a friend said they would make pearsauce which I guess is like applesauce but I dont know what one would 'pair' it up with. (OH, am i clever with that wording or what?) I love Pork and applesauce and I imagine I will soon find out what pearsauce likes to hang out with on a plate or on my palate.
So, due to all that peeling and slicing of zillions of pears, you can understand why I have taken an Aleve for the pain in my pointer finger. You can understand why this won't be a long blog today as well. Who wants to type with a sore pointer finger...if I get tendonitis, I'll never peel another pear!
I googled Bartlett's Quotations to see if he said anything about pears
because I thought that would be hilarious, but alas, nothing!
