Last night I went shopping and the grocer had a sale on all the pies from Thanksgiving they were trying to unload. They had pumpkin, sweet potato, apple, cherry, blueberry, peach, etc etc
I then wondered “Hmm…I’ve never seen nor hear of a ‘Pear pie’.”
Of course when I got home I Google’d it and about thousand recipes for pear pie came up.
But it got me wondering, “how come you never hear of a pear pie?” It exists. So is it that pears just don’t make good filling? Or what?
So my question is are there some fruits that don’t make good pie fillings. I like pears a lot, much better than apples.
For the purposes of this question, please feel free to fill in other things that taste good but don’t make good pie filling, even if they aren’t fruits. (For example, sweet potatoes aren’t fruit, but I’d throw it in here, if they didn’t make a good filling.)
And if they don’t make good fillings, why not? Is it they just don’t stand up well to heat or whatever the reason.
