A friend of mine processed a bushel of pears (old timey hard pears) after they sat in his garage for a week and softened a bit. After about an hour of peeling/paring his hands gradually turned black, like a mild case of Black Walnut blackening. The blackening disappeared over a 3 day period.
Has anyone else had this experience?
I have peeled and cored a couple dozen pears at one sitting many times and not noticed any skin discoloration.
