Our Bartlett and Bosc pears are a powerhouse fruit packed with vitamins, fiber, and healthy plant compounds. Pears are rich in anti-oxidants, fight inflammation, and promote gut and heart health. According to Medical Daily news, "pears pack all of these nutrients in a fat free, cholesterol free, 100 calorie package. As part of a balanced, nutritious diet, consuming pears could support weight loss and reduce a person's risk of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease." They store well in the refrigerator and make great culinary delights from desserts, to salads and even salad dressings.
Pears compliment chicken or pork. They pair nicely with cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon, chocolate and make a nice condiment with our favorite cheese, Valley Ford Estero Gold.
