Buying and Storing Pears………..

If you are looking for a ripe pear to eat immediately, press a finger gently into the top of the pear just where the stem joins the fruit. If it just starts to give there, the fruit is ripe. Don’t buy pears that are soft anywhere else, as that indicates that they are overripe and the flesh will be mushy and mealy.

How to store and ripen them: If the pears are not ripe, store at room temperature in a single layer until they darken in color. Once they are ripe, store in the refrigerator where they can actually last for a few weeks. Again, if you want to speed up the ripening, put them in a paper bag with a ripe banana or apple.

When buying Pears………………….

When buying Pears, look for a pear that’s relatively soft — hard, unripe pears are just going to have to sit there until they ripen. A trick for telling whether it’s ripe: Press gently near the stem with your thumb, looking for the pear to give slightly.
