i have a recipe (chicken braised with pears) calling for just ripe bosc pears-i know bosc pears are known for cooking, but do you think it would be ok to use bartlett instead? is the texture too different?

  1. by the way, the pears are not braised along with the chicken, they a srot of garnish...sauteed with butter and sugar, carmelized...

    1. Yes you can. Make sure the bartlett pears are still firm and they cook faster than bosc. There was a recently discussion on this. See link.
