    kolibri's Note:

    If you love ginger, you'll love these. If you don't - you can just omit the ginger. The mixture of dried and fresh pears is just perfect - the fresh ones give it moisture, the dried ones intense pear flavour. This recipe is from Starbucks' Passion for Coffee book.

      Yum! I picked this recipe to burn up some overripe pears, and it's a keeper! I did sub the dried pears for extra fresh and the candied ginger for about a tsp of ground, but the original ingredients sound like a very good mix and I would plan on trying them when I can get to the store. Also, I experimented and made a ginger glaze for a few of them which turned out quite excellent - boil two or three parts sugar to one part water with a squirt of lemon juice and a few dashes of ginger, then drizzle over tops of hot muffins.

      I baked these today using the crystallized ginger and they were yummy. I too could not find dried pears on their own so I bought 4 bags of a dried fruit medley that included dried pears and got them that way. The contrast of dried and fresh pears mixed with the crystallized ginger is very appealing.
