Growing up, my grandparents had a couple of pear trees in their backyard. I loved going out there and picking up pears to eat. Of course, I would get in trouble every so often when I didn’t wash them first, but they were just so good! Something about a fresh picked pear that made my mouth water. Now that I’m older, I still love pears, but I want to mix it up a bit. These recipes are going to help me do just that.

Pears are one of those fruits you either love or hate. Combining them with savory spices is key and these recipes certainly deliver! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com
