Using Fresh Pears

Asked October 23, 2017, 2:03 PM EDT

I've been given a peck of pears .... they are beautiful, just picked, and HARD as a rock. We've waited all summer, a few have fallen but these are PICKED. It's Oct 23. If I wait till they soften, they may rot. Do they need a frost? or just peel and slice and poach? There are way too many of them to allow them to waste away. Thank you for any ideas
