Project

Fall Arrangement: Pear "Welcome" Display

Introduction

Here's a fresh idea for the season's abundant Forelles and Anjous: Use them to make a friendly, fragrant greeting.

Line up seven pears (in the same color or a mix) on a mantel. Then, with a fine-tipped washable marker, write letters on the front of each pear. Press whole cloves into the flesh along the lines; using a pushpin or a tack first can ease their entry. Make the letters no earlier than the day your guests arrive -- the sweet and spicy aroma will be as welcoming as the message itself.

    I think this is so wonderfully simple and elegant. I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me just how many cloves I might need?
