The sweetest day of the year has come and gone! Thanks for tuning in to our chef partners, who created some delicious World Pear Day recipes that you’ll want to make every day of the year.
In addition to viewing our pear-a-thon of cooking, let’s make sure we have the basics down.
There are 10 varieties of USA pears, each with their own unique color, flavor and texture.
At only 100 calories per serving, pears are an excellent source of fiber, have vitamin C, are sodium free, fat free and cholesterol free.
Do you know the trick to see if your non-Bartlett pear is ripe? Check the neck! Apply gentle pressure to the neck of the pear with your thumb. If it yields to pressure, it’s ripe. It’s that easy!
Not quite ready to use your pears and want to store them for later? Check out all the different methods for preserving your favorite fruit.
