Pears are very sensitive to pressure, which is why they are usually not sold ready for consumption. It's best to let them ripen for a few more days. Pears can be eaten raw with a bowl or cooked as compote. They are tasty as a cake topping or as a side dish to game dishes and combined with cheese also with salad. Pears are best stored in a cool place, but not in the fridge. There are sweet pears with soft flesh, which are more suitable for desserts, and slightly tart pears with firm flesh, which are suitable for compote or baking.
