Red Pear Frangipane Tart Recipe
Red Pear Frangipane tarte does not have to be overly complicated. By eliminating a few unnecessary technical steps and replacing them with an easy-to-do method, you can be cooking up this classic French tarte in no time. Red Pears sliced up with the skin on not only make this easy, but beautiful with that vibrant pop of color in what is normally a bland looking dessert presentation. Assembly is a breeze with the forgiving dough texture. Also, the filling is thick allowing for easy suspension of the pear slices. When it is baked and cooled, dust with powdered sugar, slice and serve! Simple, delicious and lovely. Visit www.joyfullygrown.com for full recipe!

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Bosc Pears and Jam
I suggest using a jam infused with spicy or savory flavors, such as chilis or vinegars, for the best result. I used a locally made strawberry, balsamic and black pepper jam that I buy at our farmer’s market. Option nutritional boosters – 1 tablespoon flaxseeds, 1/2 teaspoon spiralina, or half of an avocado for a creamier consistency

Breakfast Quinoa with Warm Honey Pears
Overnight oats are a popular choice for breakfast these. But this version changes things up with Quinoa and chia seeds instead of oats. Since the recipe calls for cooked quinoa it makes it easy to use leftover quinoa from dinner or make a double batch and reserve some for breakfast.

Our Asian-inspired pear salad features firm-but-ripe Anjou pears that hold their shape when spiralized.

Savory Pear Ricotta Sheet Tart
We love sheet tarts for their show-stopping simplicity. Our savory pear ricotta sheet tart uses store-bought pastry to keep prep time to a minimum and ensure consistent results.

It’s served at room temperature and can be made a little ahead of time.

This sophisticated, sweet and savory dip is great for cocktail parties (not to mention so easy to make!). Red Anjou pears are versatile and can be used like other pear varieties.

Vanilla Lavender Concorde Pears and Fig Jam
Concorde pears are smaller in size with a long narrow neck. They can be enjoyed at all stages of ripeness, but their flavor does mellow as the fruit gets riper. The firm texture and hint of vanilla notes make this variety the perfect pear for our lovely vanilla lavender jam. Not your typical morning toast jam, this version is best served with salty cheeses such as parmesan or feta on crusty bread, or alongside savory roasted meats.

This versatile salsa can be served alongside any roasted meat, seafood or can be added to mixed greens for a delicious fall salad.
pear and bacon grilled cheese sandwich with parmesan crust on a white plate
Pear and Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwich with a Parmesan Crust
Your classic grilled cheese sandwich just got an adult makeover. We combined juicy pears with salty bacon and herbed goat cheese for the ultimate sweet and savory sandwich experience. And to gild the lily a bit more we grilled it in Parmesan for an extra crunchy tanginess. We used a Bosc pear in this recipe because of its firmness, but a Bartlett pear would be equally delicious.
