Pears are a delight in the jar... so pretty through the glass, floating golden in their juices, serene, plump as Buddhas. Here we’ve taken 6lbs of Comice pears, ripe but firm, & canned them with an unexpected, delicious combination of spices. Enjoy!
The zippiness of minced fresh ginger and a crisp Pink Lady apple gave the mellow pears a pleasant kick. The compote ended up swirled in yogurt and oatmeal, but it was at its best paired with walnuts on a buttermilk waffle.
