"Apple Pear" Crisp

It made my day to see that WVU Farms has their first of the season apples and pears for sale.  I love these fruits in any variety.  The Kearneysville, West Virginia farm grows Asian pears, which are also known as "apple pears".  These pears are round, crisp and a little tart- a perfect selection for this fall convection.  The recipe was inspired by The Local Palate.   

Pear Crisp

Mix sugars, conrstarch, cinnamon and ginger.  Mix with pears. 
5 small-medium Asian pears, peeled, with seeds and core removed, sliced
