FAQs about Bartlett pears

Red Bartlett pears have the same texture as green Bartletts. The only significant difference is the color of the skin. The red variety works perfectly in any recipe that calls for Bartlett pears, and they are also delicious as a snack. You can eat red Bartletts before they are ripe if you like a tart, crunchy texture. If you wait until they ripen, the flesh turns sweeter and juicier, just like the green ones. 

Bartlett pears freeze very well. Start with a firm-ripe pear, and then wash, peel, and core them. Cut up into slices or quarters, and add citric acid or lemon juice for every quart of water to keep them from browning. Soak the pears in this solution for a few minutes. Once soaked, you can choose from a few different preservation methods. Preserving in syrup will give them the best color and good texture, but you can also just drain and cool before packing into a freezer-safe bag before putting it in the freezer. 

If you want to freeze them in syrup, dissolve three cups of sugar in four cups of water. Bring it to a boil and add the pears to blanch for two minutes. Let cool, and then pack in freezer jars. Make sure to fill the empty space with syrup, leaving enough headspace for expansion.
