Thanks, if I use my oatmeal/almond crust and it doesn't have corn starch in it that is possible.

GCG,

That oatmeal/almond pie crust is very inspiring.  I hardly make any pies that I can recall but I may reconsider.

Let us know how the bosc pear pie turns out.  I love bosc pears.

I have used pears in green salads. They are delicious with crisp green salad leaves or rocket, a compliant cheese and a compliant nut - for me that means parmesan and walnuts. The pears are fine used raw (peeled) but I recently tried them browned for a few minutes each side on a chargrill pan...just long enough to give them those brown stripes but not so long that they turn soft. They were particularly delicious that way.

Elana Amsterdam's almond flour cookbook has a pear tart that looks good.
I just bought apples for my family--an avoid for me. Wish I had some pears!

They're really good for baking, broiling and poaching because they have a firm flesh that doesn't fall apart. Here's my favorite way to eat them aside from just cutting them up to eat out of hand.

Sauteed Pears

In a skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons unsalted butter or ghee. Add a couple of healthy pinches of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice each (use whatever is compliant for your type) and cook until aromatic, about 30 seconds. Add in 6 Bosc pears, peeled, cored and quartered. Saute for about 15 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Stir in the juice of 1/2 a lemon (about 2 tablespoons). Serve with roasted chopped walnuts or pecans and Greek yogurt, or on top of homemade gluten-free waffles or pancakes.

Btw, they are incredibly delicious sliced very thin and placed in a turkey sandwich, or eaten with chevre and crispy walnuts and a glass of red wine.

Go for it. Pear butter is awesome stuff. Maybe try some spiced pears too--if you don't want to do cinnamon/cloves etc, try cardamom seeds instead. Different and very tasty.

Thanks Brighid, I had actually thought about using cardamon. I like to use just enough of it in fruit that people are wondering what it is but can't quite figure it out. At $10.00 a bottle you have to be stingy with it any way.

last year I was give pears which I canned in lemon water, they are just a white as when I fist canned them.  I do it this way so that they can be used in any recipe.  I'll keep my eyes out maybe they will be on sale here, too.
