Help! Too many pears

Discerning1 | Aug 12, 2012 11:27 AM

My comice pear tree has been wildly prolific this year. I have canned some in a brandied, vanilla bean syrup. Some have been poached in port, cinnamon, orange juice, cloves and cranberries.

But I have pounds and pounds still. To be honest, they aren't the best eating pear. The flavor is weak to my taste. And they get soft when heat is applied (so making a tart, for instance, worries me).

I'd feel better about donating them to a food bank if they had more flavor.

Ideas, please, for using them in food preparation.
