How can I ripen store-bought pears in one day? I am having a dinner party tonight and need them for a recipe. The pears I bought have not yet ripened.

First, it can't be done in a day. It will take 24 to 48 hours. Put the pears in a large plastic container with 2 or 3 apples. Be sure the container closes tightly. The apples give off a gas that will ripen the pears fairly quickly, but not in 12 hours or less. Sorry.

Put them in a paper bag with bananas. I always put mine with bananas in the fruit bowl and it works great! I'm not sure about having them ready by evening though!:)
