how to tell if a pear is ripe, this will change your relationship to pears 

None of you know how to ripen a pear and that’s okay! I am here to help. A perfectly ripe pear is one of life’s great joys but most folks don’t know how to identify one! So they get a bad rap.

The thing is, pears ripen from the core outward, so by the time the flesh is soft on the outside it’s too late! What you want to do is feel the flesh right around the stem, when it's soft the pear is ripe. Try it! 🍐

@venusinlibra666 I told you it would change your relationship to pears. Thoreau (I think) said that the ideal ripeness of a pear lasts mere seconds and it’s kinda true. Know how to tell when they’re perfectly ripe is really important! This advice applies to all pears except maybe asian pears
