Pear and Almond Challenge
This week, you have to make use of the following two ingredients, pears – which are in season right now – and almonds for the pear and almond challenge. Dave is not a huge fan of pears, unless they are cooked. I can poach them in red wine or I can bake with them. This way he will eat them. I however love pears. As long as they are not too ripe. They need to have crunch as well as taste. Almonds are one of my favourite nuts. I keep a large container in our pantry and snack on a handful when ever I feel peckish. It is a whole lot better for my waistline than snacking on the tart I made for the challenge.
You can add what ever else you need to make or bake something – post your recipe and photo on your blog and drop in and let me know when you have done it.
After the first challenge I have realized timing is important, in more ways than one. The challenge ends at midnight next Friday and the post about who has participated will go up the following Monday
