Pears Make Their Way onto Menus at Oregon Bed and Breakfasts

Serving up Pears at an Oregon Bed and Breakfast

Pears Make Their Way onto Menus at OBBG inns. Imagine waking up in the morning to the scent of fresh brewed coffee, something yummy baking in the kitchen and knowing someone has already been up for hours just to prepare breakfast for you. That’s what you can look forward to when visiting an Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild inn.

December is National Pear Month and here in Oregon we believe pears should be celebrated all year long. But we’ll especially celebrate the bounty of pears in December when it is National Pear Month. Did you know that 84% of the nation’s pears are grown in Oregon and Washington? The volcanic soil provides pear tree nourishment, the rain and snowmelt provides moisture and of course our ideal temperature is a huge factor.

We asked our innkeepers to submit their favorite pear recipes and were pleased to see that once again, we are all about keeping it local and fresh.

Mary and Steve Pellegrini have owned the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast in the Hood River Valley for over 20 years. Their recipe using Bosc pears is easy, tasty, and the presentation is gorgeous. She calls it, “Microwave Poached Bosc Pears with Raspberry Sauce

  • peel one ripe pear per person but leave the stem on
  • cut a small slice from the bottom of pears to flatten so they stand upright
  • put pears in a microwave safe dish and pour one tablespoon of maple syrup over each one
  • cover and microwave about one and half minutes per pear until hot
  • place pears on individual small plates and pour about one tablespoon raspberry syrup over each pear
  • garnish with raspberries
