Concord Pear & Raspberries: School Lunch Idea!

Pears are a favorite at our house.  D'Anjou, Bartlett, Bosc, Comice, and Concord are currently in stock at my local grocery store.  Instead of the usual apple in the lunch box I have been switching it up with a raspberry-filled pear half.  The Concord travels very well and does not brown.  The taste is sweet and the texture is buttery.  I like the skin which has a little bit of chewiness but not too thick/tough.
These can be prepared the night before but if you like to make lunches in the AM it can be prepared in less than a minute.  All you need is a spoon and a knife to prepare. Use the spoon to scoop out the seeds leaving a perfect space to fill with raspberries.  Use a knife to cut out the stem.  Enjoy!
