 How to ripen pears

 
If you have plenty of pears on hand, chances are at least some of them are not good and ripe. For what? Because pears are one of the few fruits that taste good when picked on the tree. Ripe pears are usually mealy and mushy, so they are often cut young and shipped cold to avoid crushing and spoilage.

This means that most of the pears we buy are not in "eat today" condition. This is usually good for the pears we cook; Having that little bit of firmness and balancing residual acidity makes these pears perfect for cakes, tarts, tartlets, preserves or butter. But if you want to eat pears on their own or use them raw in salads, etc., you need soft, perfect pears.

 How to ripen pears themselves
 
The good news is that pears ripen well at room temperature in 4 to 7 days. If you don't have an emergency pear, just leaving them on a plate or plate will do the trick.
 
If you want them to ripen faster, add a ripe apple or banana to the mix. These fruits will increase the amount of ethylene, a gas that helps to ripen, making the process faster.

 For speed - to ripen pears in 2 to 4 days - put the pears in a paper bag and close the top tightly to lock in ethylene. The paper breathes well enough to prevent mold or rot, but still retains ethylene gas to create a small ripening chamber. Add an apple or banana to the bag to speed things up.

 If you have a lot of pears and don't need them all to ripen at the same time, don't worry: pears grow best when stored between 65 and 75 degrees F, so any pears you are not ready can keep in the refrigerator until you want to bring them back to room temperature to start ripening.

 If you like to eat pears a day, for example, keep three or four out ripening, and the rest in the refrigerator: after eating one, replace it with cold fruit to maintain grow up
