The denseness of their flesh makes them a versatile cooking option. Bosc pears bake well, and bakers often combine them with other fruits like blueberries in pies. The sweetness of the Bosc pear holds up well against more potent spices like cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. You can incorporate poached Bosc pears into a sauce made with vanilla and bourbon, which complement the pear's sweetness and pairs well with savory dishes like pork and duck.
Sliced fresh, the Bosc pear can top your favorite salad of fresh spinach or field greens. The crisp, sweet flavor makes an excellent garnish for cocktails, or you can muddle them into the drink for a more intense flavor. You can also slice the Bosc pear thin and dip it into chocolate for a decadent treat similar to the chocolate-dipped strawberry.
