  • Description

    Bartlett Pears are stemmed, cored, cut and complimented with candied ginger.  There's a delicate side to ginger that's best expressed when candied; it lends a subtle warmth to these pears while drawing out their fragrance.

    "Pears, as a tree fruit, were considered of high status, and thus suitable only for those of high birth. Numerous documents attest to the desirability of pears as a gift among the nobility, particularly because of their delicate and ephemeral nature. A whole genre of fruit poetry arose to celebrate this idea."  From Cheese, Pears and History In a Proverb by Massimo Montanari
