What to do with China Pears?

Postby Heidi » Sun Dec 27, 2009 8:08 pm

Hello, I've been given a box of China Pears, which are a roundish, hard green pear. They need to be cooked, and am told they will turn a lovely pink colour. Has anyone used "China Pears" before. I know I can just make them into pear sauce etc, but as I think they are an old fashioned style pear, if anyone has a specific old fashioned recipe that may be more suited to an old fashioned pear that would be helpful.

Hi Heidi,

Are they also called Nashi?

If so I've had them fresh and they were very juicy, I would do the same as with pears.

My Mum has a tree and each year if she gets fruit the birds get it before her. ;)

No, unfortunately these are definitely not Nashi's, otherwise the box would've been all but gone by now!

I've never heard of them, I googled it a bit but you'd really need to have the fruit to know what you're googling.

Let us know when you find out what they are.
