The perfect match for these rugged pears is Wensleydale cheese. Yes the cheese made famous by Wallace and Grommit. It's British, soft, crumbly, sweet with a light honey taste, and with cranberries embedded in it like little jewels, it is marvelous. It also goes very well with fruit ... especially PEARS. Imagine that. However, the Wensleydale cheese I purchased came in a small package with the warning that it must be eaten in seven days once opened. My wife and I found this no hardship at all.
So, if you want a little taste of luxury ... and want to be able to repeat it over say seven days, grab some Bosc and Wensleydale and have at it.
A word of caution: Boscs are easy to come by. The Wensleydale took some searching out. We found it in a small package at the local Acme supermarket. Rumor has it Sam's Club has it as well (probably in larger packages). It's worth the hunt.
