A pear of pairs is already full of juice that is rich in vitamin A & C so it makes sense to whizz these up to drink up. Fun fact of the day: pear is often the first juice introduced to infants. We still love it as adults. Country of Origin - UK/Fra...nce/Italy Class - Minimum Class 2 Variety - Williams & Ercolini (week commencing 31st August)

Producer

Paul and Sara Ward have four and a half acres of orchards and wild flower meadows. Upon discovering that an estimated 90% of the organic fruit sold in Britain is imported they set out to change this. 

They steer clear of supplying big chains and send their delicious orchard fruits – including these perfect pears – to farm shops and box schemes like ours.

Nutrition

Pears are not particularly rich in nutrients, but they can be used in cooking to sweeten the taste of sharper fruits without adding refined sugar. Pears have a very sweet taste, so they act as a good substitute to snacks with added sweeteners. Pears are rich in soluble fibre, and so help the body maintain blood sugar levels.

Storage & prep

Peel pears with a potato peeler, if necessary. To eat whole, they just need a rinse. Pears are great baked in wine with vanilla and cinnamon, and there are a huge number other ways to cook them. Depending the texture you prefer, keep in the fridge for a crunchier taste. If you like them softer then keep at room temperature until they are as soft as you want.
