I often purchase spare of the moment ingredients I see, temptation too overpowering. I usually have no idea on how I will use said ingredient, but I am overwhelmed with the need to have them.
This doesn’t present such a problem when they are pantry items. I have a list of pantry items waiting for me to play around in the kitchen with them. The problem is when it is fresh produce, like unusual fruit or vegetables, or simply in season, which grab my attention.
This is what happened with these pears. I spent the Saturday out shopping and have a lovely lunch with Amanda. On venturing into the local Asian grocery store, I spied these mini pears. I apologise now that I have no idea what variety they are, just small, cute as a button little pears. I just had to have them.
