What Do You Think?........


Last night on our walk...

One of my neighbours, offered me some of his pears...

From his pear tree...

I asked him if I should sit them on the counter to ripen...

He replied.."I like to eat them just like that"...

"Really?"...I replied...

"I kinda like them soft"...

So...what do you think???

Do you think they will ripen???

Or...

Stay hard???

Had quite an exciting day here...albeit...a long one!!

Will save that for another post...

Enjoy your evening...lovely and hot and sunny here!!

Have everything prepared to make Summer Pasta...with Ceasar Salad...

It just seemed fitting....

                         Cheers!  :o)

  1. I think your pears will ripen....but, you can hasten the ripening process by placing them in a paper bag for a few hours or a day...so I've heard. By the way, they look lovely sitting there in the green bowl. Summer pasta sounds good!

  3. Your pears make the perfect centerpiece. I love the dish and the look...I like my pears just between hard and soft. I like a little crunch.
    Your summer pasta looks great. Have a great evening.

  4. As Laurie said, I was going to say put them in a paper bag. It does work! I prefer mine somewhere in the middle.

    1. I guess they will stay where they are for a while...
      My bet is...they will not ripen!!

  5. I like my pears on the harder side of soft, but I will eat them if they ripen too.
    Bananas, on the other hand, should not be too ripe. Once they get more than a few brown spots they're ready for banana bread.

  6. We have a pear tree and we pick them green and let them ripen on the plate. If you pick them yellow then they are mushy.

  10. So not sure of what to do with fruit and veggies. I buy pears at the grocery when they feel a tiny bit soft...the same with peaches. Nothing feels worse than biting into a hard fruit like that. I get lost in the info. I heard that tomatoes should not be refrigerated---some sort of chemical reaction from the cold that makes them go bad faster. Yet when I leave them out, they wrinkle and go bad in a few days. Not to mention fruit flies that appear out of nowhere. Who can you believe?

    The pasta sounds lovely...I'm going to look for it.

    1. i also buy them almost soft...with a rosy glow!!
      It is true about tomatoes...I usually try to buy them a bit on the unripened side, then they will be perfect!!
      DO NOT put them in the fridge!!
      Fruit flies drive me crazy!!

  11. I like them a bit soft with some juice, but not mushy. I do the paper bag thing too. However, they look beautiful on that plate! Terrific photo.

  12. Oh, I do love pears! I let them ripen...sometimes it takes a week. Soft and juicy is the way I like them...so much more flavor. The Mister likes them crunchy but not me!

  15. How nice of your neighbor to give you some pears! I think they will ripen if you leave them on the counter for a few days. I like my pears on the soft side, but not mushy.

  16. If I'm juicing them then always hard. If I'm baking, somewhere in the middleish, and if I'm making pearsauce, then I really don't care, they can be mush because I'm making them into a bigger mush.

  17. I like my pears soft too . . . not mushy, but hard just doesn't seem right.
