Hey! Pears are an autumnal fruit!
I know, like apples. And here I am making a pear tart in July. Shame on me. Not very organo-seasonal-local (loco?) of me. Oh well. If it makes any difference, it’s early winter for my readers in the Southern Hemisphere, which is where the pears came from. So think of this pear tart as seasonal and/or local for them. Does that make it better?
