The crisp, juicy texture and sweet, almost-floral flavor of Asian pears require little accompaniment. These pears do not soften when ripe; choose uniformly firm, unblemished fruit when shopping.

Instructions Checklist
  • Cut each pear quarter lengthwise into 4 slices, and place in a large bowl. Bring ginger, vanilla seeds and pod, sugar, and water to a boil in a small saucepan for 3 minutes. Pour mixture over pears. Press a piece of parchment directly on surface, and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. Discard vanilla pod and ginger. Divide pears among 4 bowls, and serve with cookies or wafers on the side if desired.
