Pair the Pear – Melissa’s Shares 4 Favorite Pear Recipes

Banner image

 

It’s pear season and I want to share 4 ideas I just love – ‘pairing the pear’ with some of my favorite products. The wonderful thing about pears is they are equally delicious in both savoury and sweet dishes and are so incredibly versatile. If you still want to enjoy your pears out of season, then you can simply buy a jar of our Bottled Pears or Pears in Red Wine Sauce which we’ve used in a few of these recipes… Pears all year round!

PEAR, FENNEL & PRESERVED LEMON

This salad is superb, with a delicious crunch and a tangy twist from our Preserved Lemons. The mild, sweet anise flavor from the fennel adds a whole new dimension and perfectly complements the dish. A must try and perfect dish for ‘in between’ the seasons when you feel like a salad with a bit more ‘oomph’ and substance.

RED WINE PEARS & BISCOTTI CRUMBLE

A true classic, you can rarely go wrong with a fruit crumble. Moving into the cooler months, it’s a brilliant way to end off a dinner party or family supper. This crumble is made with our Pears in Red Wine Sauce and a packet of Melissa’s Fruit & Nut Biscotti which is packed with nuts and fruit. Serve with thick clotted cream or ice cream. Also delicious paired with your favorite port. Yum…!

CARAMELIZED PEAR PAVLOVA

An Autumnal twist on the classic fruit pavlova. Just look at these colors! Your family & friends will be ‘oohing and saying’ when you bring this dish to the table. And it’s so brilliantly simple to make. Buy a Pavlova nest from Melissa’s, a jar of Bottled Pairs, a few nuts and follow our simple recipe. The homemade caramel takes a little time to make but is so worth it and adds a beautiful CRUNCH to the dish.
