To ripen pears, place them in a loosely closed paper bag at room temperature. Always handle pears gently to avoid bruising the fruit. Bruised areas rapidly decay. Store ripe pears in the refrigerator. Rinse pears before eating.
Sliced pears will turn brown when exposed to air. Prevent browning by coating pears with an acidic juice such as lemon, orange, or pineapple juice, and by cutting them as close to serving time as possible.
Wash, peel, core and slice. Dry or tray pack: Treat with ½ teaspoon (1,500 mg) ascorbic acid in 3 tablespoons water to prevent browning.
