Carrot and Asian Pear Soup with Mint Pistou and Walnuts
On Orcas Island where I spend time during the summer and fall months, we have an Asian pear tree. The pears are ripe late August to mid-September and I love finding delicious ways to eat them. Carrot and ginger soup is one of my favorites but I wondered how I could incorporate Asian pears into the mix. If you can't find Asian pears try using a Anjou pears instead.
