I have a new food enemy. Pears. Well, I've got to be really honest here -- its not the pears -- they're really good for us... its what my grandmother does with the pears that makes me crazy.
Growing up do you remember any food at your family table that caused a complete rukus? There were a few at mine, blueberries for one and the second was pear preserves.
I know you're probably rolling your eyes and saying "Pear preserves! What the heck is so great about some boiled sugar laden pears."
