Pears kinda freak me out. There’s just something about them… I think it’s the texture. Every time I bite into one, I expect the crispiness of an apple and instead get this… grainy texture? I don’t know. Call me weird if need be.
But, when cooked down a bit, the texture issue goes away and sudden it’s like I’m eating apple pie/crisp. It’s amazing how much liquid comes out of pears when cooked down. I almost drained it all, but realized just in time that it makes for an awesome sauce for this dessert/snack -like recipe.
