{try-me tuesday} — a seckel pear

4 Dec

the truth is, i like to switch it up a little.  if you were looking forward to a “travel tuesday” post, fret not – for there will be plenty others to come. i just have a good backlog of food fotos at this point and i want to share some of these before their season is over 🙂

i love trying new foods and whenever i’m in the produce department and i spot something new, i grab it up.  the beautiful seckel pear was my latest first.

i love the colour!  they are smaller than a normal pear and tend to blossom into this burgundy colour as they ripen…

apparently they are sometimes referred to as “sugar pears” because they are so sweet

they ‘pair’ lovely with a good brie, some sharp cheddar, or a gouda.  really – most any kind of cheese goes with pears.  but this one is so distinctly sweet that i feel a sharper cheddar or nuttier-tasting cheese would compliment it best.  i actually know a bonafide cheese-monger.  i should ask him…

happy eating everyone!
