Cooking With Pears

Have you ever looked at a recipe and found an ingredient that seemed unorthodox? You may have reservations about adding this portion to your dish. However, when you took the leap and included it, you may have found that it made your meal much more delicious than you anticipated! One food that is a shining example of this trait is a pear. You wouldn’t expect pears to taste so good in a cooked setting, but they can actually add a lot more flavor to an otherwise uninspired meal. But what are the best ways to cook with pears – and what recipes best utilize them? We tell you all you need to know below!

The Best Ways To Cook With Pears

Believe it or not, pears can be cooked in a variety of different ways to enhance their taste further! There are a few ways that you can maximize their flavor in terms of the styles you can cook pears with. Out of the many, these three are the best ways to utilize your pears:



  • Poaching: If you’ve never heard of poaching in cooking before, it’s a method where you heat food that is submerged in a specific type of liquid, such as wine or milk. The pear slowly boils on the stovetop, allowing its flavors to concentrate and create a sweeter end result.
  • Roasting: You’ll find a great example of roasted pears on our appetizer menu! This process makes the pears softer without turning them into a paste. Only certain types of pears work best with this method – all of which we’ve used!
  • Baking: The easiest method of cooking pears is comparable to baking cookies. Simply stick your pears on a baking tray and place them in the oven!


Best Recipes For Cooked Pears

Cooked pears go great in a variety of different recipes that maximize its flavor. Some of the most noteworthy pairings that AquaPazza offers are our Insalata Mista and our main course salmon. However, if you want to try out cooked pears for yourself, you can use any one of the recipes that we’ve recommended below!

  • Pear Cobbler: The counterpart to peach cobbler, pear cobbler simply substitutes the peaches for pears. But don’t let it fool you into thinking that it’s any less sweet – pear cobbler still boasts the same incredible flavor!
  • Pear Crisp: One of the lesser-known fall treats is pretty underrated in terms of what it brings to the table. Pears are a welcome substitute for apples in this popular dessert recipe.
