Key Ingredient: Pears

Pity the poor pear. It’s fall, and all anyone ever seems to talk about is apples, apples, apples. We’re not going to stand idly by.

So take home some pears from your area farmers market, and have a go at one of these ideas from our Recipe Finder:

Baked Chicken With Tarragon, Mustard and Pear (Julia Ewan/The Washington Post)
Baked Chicken With Tarragon, Mustard and Pear, a quick-cooking dinner featuring those squat Anjou pears.

Pear and Almond Frangipane Tart, a beautiful dessert that will wow the guests at your next dinner party.

Pear Soup With Honey, which works well as a first course or dessert.

Roast Pear and Fennel Salad, with a mellow flavor imparted by a turn in the oven.

What’s your favorite dish with pears?
