Every morning when I walk out my door to go to work, I see our pear tree. One of our favorite things to make with the Asian Pears that grow on our tree is Pear Bread.
I can’t believe that year after year I watched the pears grow on that tree, gave them away to neighbors and never once used them or ate them. Truth be told, I’m not crazy about the “texture” of pears.
And, of course, because it wasn’t something I liked to eat, that meant I didn’t make pear anything for my family either. Then, one day I decided to ask my neighbors about the Asian Pear tree. They knew nothing.
How could they live next door to Nanny (our house was my husband’s childhood home) all these years and not know anything about this fruit tree! I mean, they have an amazing vegetable garden in their backyard. Certainly Nanny or Papoo had shared their pears. Nope. They don’t like pears. Funny, right!
Asian Pear Tree Quest
So, I took my search for information on Asian pears online. I didn’t know simple things, like how to tell if they were ripe. I didn’t know if they were even an edible fruit or simply ornamental.
Then when I found out they are definitely edible, I began looking for recipes.
I first made Pineapple Pear Jam and it was amazing! I even tasted the Asian Pears for the first time and guess what? They are juicy and oh so sweet. They are crisp like an apple, but taste like a pear. I’d say that makes them the perfect pear! And, they bake up beautifully! You could easily substitute Asian pears in any recipe that calls for apples.
Then, I tried making Pear Bread. It was a huge hit with our family, friends and neighbors. I just kept making pear bread and gifting it. I even made pear muffins using my same pear bread recipe. Guess what? They were just as amazing.
Guess what was missing from my little food gift packages? Gift Tags!

The coloring of the gift tags in these pictures of my pound cake, are a little off as my printer was low on ink. Your printable gift tags should more closely match the picture of the gift tags, assuming your printer is calibrated correctly. Just goes to show that you can expect some slight variation in the color depending on your printer settings and your ink supply!
