Seckel pears are diminutive in size, but make up for it in big flavor that sings notes of sweet champagne and sometimes called “sugar pears,” because they’re so sweet. They are amazing raw in salads and the perfect size for a lunch box. Roasting the pears transforms the grainy, juicy flesh into a decadent side dish. Balance out this sweetness by pairing with sharp cheese and a glass of dry white wine.
