Once the British season has come to a close, our apples come from a cooperative of five Dutch growers in the polder province of Flevoland. These include Florian de Clerq, for five generations his family have lived and worked on their Olmenhorst orchards. As well as growing lovely apples and pears, they run pick your own days and hold workshops and fairs to engage the local community with organic farming.
Abel & Cole handles celery, celeriac and nuts on site. Due to our packing process and re-use of boxes there is a risk of cross-contamination from these, and all other allergens.
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 many other ways to cook them. Depending on the texture you prefer, you can keep them in the fridge for a crunchier taste. If you like them softer then keep them at room temperature until they are as soft as you want. Suitable for home freezing.
