Pickled Seckel Pears

Seckel Pears are tiny pears, with a chubby, round body, small neck, and short stem. The smallest of all commercially grown pears, Seckels are exceptionally sweet. So sweet in fact, that the bite-size morsels are sometimes called “sugar pears.” These pickled Seckel pears can be eaten right away, but they’ll continue to become more flavorful with time. According to recipe developer, Brook Hurst Stephens of Learn to Preserve, these lightly-spiced pickled pears are a beautiful addition to a cheese plate, and wonderful with roast meats, especially milder meats like chicken and pork.
