So...correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this pear is Peruvian, no? I remember I went to Peru with one of my friends (who grew up there) a couple years ago, and I think I remember him showing me this pear, although it could have easily been something else. At any rate, I've never found them in the supermarket, and even though I'd love to try the recipes, I just can't find the ingredients!

This is a difficult ingredient to find, but well the taste is exotic and rare, thanks a lot for including recipes with it, maybe I could surprise some Mexican friend I have with the last recipe, I have read that mole is originated from Mexico, so it would be a nice touch right?
