Can I eat the skin of a pear?
You can eat them whole with the skin on or incorporate them into main dishes. These fruits are especially delicious when roasted or poached.
Can you eat a pear like an apple?
You can eat pears just like you eat an apple, by holding them and eating around the middle. Pears have cores too, so don’t eat too far in (unless you want to)! If you don’t like the taste of the pear’s skin and find it too bitter or tough, you can carefully remove the skin with a knife first.
How do I keep my pears from turning brown?
To keep cut and sliced pears from turning brown, slow the oxidation process by applying lemon juice on them to denature the enzymes that cause discoloration when exposed to air. Alternatively, heat the pear slices briefly to keep them from browning.
Are pear cores poisonous?
No. While pears are safe for dogs to eat (in small amounts), pear cores contain the seeds of the fruit, which contain small amounts of toxic cyanide. The cores are also tough for dogs to chew, swallow, and digest, so you run the risk of intestinal blockage or an upset stomach.
