Full Answer

When frozen with sugar or a syrup pack, pears are less likely to brown or get freezer burn. They should be washed, peeled, cored and sliced before freezing, and any brown spots should be removed.

Pears will last many months in the freezer. They should be stored in airtight, freezer-safe plastic containers or bags.
