Bought at NZ$3/kilo at the Saturday Market a week ago Saturday. ($2.99 at the supermarkets.) The sweet but not squishy pears in the blue bowl is my favorite; I must ask what kind it is. Every year I buy lots of pears intending to preserve or infuse wine/oil/vinegar, but I end up just eating them at the start of the season. So this year, I bought different kinds just to enjoy them first, and I'll worry about preserving later.
