pear low down.

on this weeks menu: pears, sausage, goats cheese & agrugula flatbread
(available in paleo, gluten-free, and vegetarian)

General Health Information:
  • With no fat, saturated fat or cholesterol, pears can replace fatty foods in the diet.
  • While offering beneficial potassium, but no sodium, pears may help to promote a healthy blood pressure
  • Rich in fiber –  good sources of fiber contribute to satiety (feeling full) 

Compearison of Varieties:

Anjou
In salads and eaten raw by themselves or paired with cheese. Sweet juicy Anjous are perfect for baking into desserts like tarts. Anjou pears have a mild flavor and a firm texture, while still being sweet and juicy. They can be green or red, but the color doesn't indicate any major flavor or texture difference. 

Bartlett    
Eaten fresh or in salads, canned, baked or poached. Bartletts are the juiciest pears when eaten raw and, consequently, lose their shape when cooked, turning to pear-sauce quite easily with the briefest exposure to heat. They are perfect for making pear butter or as we have it on our menu with goats cheese and arugula, Order HERE.

Bosc
Eaten fresh, in salads or use in fruit baskets. Bosc pears are crisp when raw and hold their shape beautifully when cooked. They have the best example of the soft, grainy texture associated with pears. They are easy to recognize by their brownish russet skin, classic pear shape, and heady pear aroma.
