Smoked Gouda with Seckel Pear.

There was an amazing crop of pears this fall. In a search for doing something different these bites hit the mark.

The smokiness of the gouda with the sweetness of the sugared pears and the touch of heat from the pepper it was perfect.

I used a combination of Bartlett Seckel pears. I preferred the Seckels because of their sweetness. If you can find them in store I highly recommend them.

  1. How lucky you are to have fruit trees. I miss that. I used to have a few when I lived in the country.

    These apps are fantastic! I hope you give them a try.

    Thanks so much for stopping by Karen.
