Pear and Pecan Salad
Now that Pears are in season, they compliment a salad beautifully. This is a Bartlett Pear. I removed the skin and sliced and simmered in a pan of butter and Brandy for about 10 minutes until just softened.
I drizzled my own Raspberry Vinegarette over the salad and scattered a few pecan pieces over.
When I was typing this entry, I could not remember the name of the pear (senior moment). I discovered this nice site for identifying various pears.
