There’s no question that fall brings an abundance of (local) apples — and pears. Take advantage of the bounty with these lovely apple and pear-filled recipes from Eating Well.
Apple-&-Fennel Roasted Pork Tenderloin: Roasted apples, fennel and red onion are the perfect foil to roasted pork tenderloin. Make it a meal: Stir sauteed broccoli rabe into quick-cooking barley to serve alongside.
Riesling Baked Pears : Here’s an elegant yet simple twist on the autumn classic. Pears are oven-poached in Riesling wine, which is known for its floral accents and aromas and hints of honey and pear. Serve this dessert with lightly sweetened ricotta cheese. Delicious hot, room temperature or chilled.
Crunchy Pear & Celery Salad : Crisp pears are tossed with Cheddar cheese and pecans in this delicious salad. For an Italian twist, try a good Parmesan with some toasted pine nuts or to go British use crumbled Stilton and toasted walnuts.
