I made this recipe in a pinch since I had lots of apples and pears overripe. It was very delicious. Not too hard, and very tasty!

Kraft Kitchens Tips

How to Ripen Pears
Pears do not ripen well on the tree, so they are picked when mature, but not yet ripe. To ripen fresh pears at home, place them in a paper bag, fold over the top and store at room temperature for 1 to 3 days. To test for ripeness, apply gentle thumb pressure at the base of the stem. If the fruit yields slightly, the pear is ripe. Use immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
How to Core Apples & Pears
Cut whole apples or pears into quarters. Use a paring knife to cut away core and seeds from each quarter, starting at the stem end and cutting downward in a semi-circular motion.
