The tree has given many pears this year (each summer is different) the same with the apples (delicious Fuji) so now is season pears here!
I think that in the northern hemisphere they must still have pears, we have almost all year round.
We love this recipe with a soft sponge cake, almond cream and pears. Delicious.
Many of you are in Spring here still not much of Autumn but it is less hot.
This recipe is really good.
Love for all !
