Halloween is that time of year when we all get to gorge ourselves on candy and feel slightly less guilty. Besides the fact that they are naturally sweet and (in our biased opinion at least) taste better than candy, pears come in a variety of shapes and sizes that are as delicious as they are festive. The 10 varieties of pears fit right in with an array of fall dishes, but they also can be used for all sorts of Halloween fun! If you’re looking for some spooky ways to use pears, we have some fun ideas on our website and we also think these recipes from around the web will send tasty chills up your spine!
