Our backyard pear tree produced a big crop this year. We enjoyed eating them in a sweet custard tart that makes its own crust.
I think they’re the Comice variety, based on their shape and when they started to ripen.
The early fruit ripened in a bowl on the counter in about a week. The pears we picked at the end of August needed only a few days.
Now that we know what to expect of this tree, we’ll be planning more pear desserts to make at home next year. As for the recipe, it might adapt to some apples, depending on what we find fresh at the farmer’s market.
In any case, this sweet treat didn’t last long at our house.
