14 Homemade Pear Recipes | Desserts & Drinks
Pears. Apple's dejected cousin.
Over 7000 years ago, a Chinese diplomat became so obsessed with pears that he abandoned his career to help cultivate the pear that turned out to be the mother for many of the varieties we have now. While pears still aren't as popular as bananas or apples, they should be. Not only are they juicy, but then come packed with important antioxidants, flavonoids and dietary fiber that you just can't get from other fruit. If you're not a huge fan, but want to try and ease you're way into pears, we've got a list of 14 homemade pear recipes that all feature the fruit in one way or the other.
