Perfect Pears: Delicious & Juicy Pear Recipes for Fall

October 08, 2015

Pears are perfectly ripe in the fall, and are delicious in everything from salads to desserts to cocktails. While apples and pumpkin spice usually dominate the season, we're celebrating all things pear this autumn.

Pears are in season September through winter, and offer a sweet, juicy addition to our favorite fall recipes. A little milder than apples, and sweeter than pumpkin, we love throwing pears into our Thanksgiving side dishes, salads, dessert pies and even fall sangrias.

Here are 2 of my favourite pear recipes to help get you started this Thanksgiving weekend!


Even if you’re not the biggest fan of Brussels sprouts, you have to give this recipe a try. The tangy flavor combo of the Ingredients sweet pears and rich blue cheese will make for a side dish no one will forget.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb halved fresh brussels sprouts
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 2 pears, sliced and chopped

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add brussels sprouts and season with salt and pepper to taste. Without stirring, cook covered for about 7 minutes.

Uncover and add walnuts and pears, stirring to reveal the carmelized brussels sprouts. Continue cooking for about 3 more minutes.

Take off of heat and add blue cheese crumbles. Serve warm.

Serves: 4




Any celebration calls for a signature cocktail and Thanksgiving is the perfect occasion to greet your guests with a welcome drink to set the mood for your evening. Try adding some pear puree to cold champagne for a fruity, fizzy drink.

Chilled dry Champagne, Prosecco, or Sparkling wine


Pour the pear nectar into a champagne flute about 1 to 2 inches deep.

Fill the rest of the glass with champagne.

You can garnish with a thin pear slice!
