The UK season is drawing to a close so make the most of our gorgeous British pear varieties such as conference and comice. They're from the lovely Paul at Mole End Farm who also grows our delicious apples. We've also started taking the first of the Italian crop, from Simone Bazzoni in Santa Maria di Zevio, near Verona. He grows conference too as well as abate, kaiser and williams throughout the season.
Peel pears with a potato peeler, if necessary. To eat whole, they just need a rinse. Pears are great baked in wine with vanilla and cinnamon, and there are many other ways to cook them. Depending on the texture you prefer, you can keep them in the fridge for a crunchier taste. If you like them softer then keep them at room temperature until they are as soft as you want. Suitable for home freezing.
