More than forty years ago Enrique Scholtz planted his first pears and apples in the High Valley of Río Negro, in Argentine Patagonia. At the end of the 80s, his desire to farm in the most environmentally friendly and sustainable manner led him, and a small group of his farming friends, to work together and start growing organically. Enrique's daughters Bettina and Cecilia have now stepped in to provide some extra pairs of hands, and to ensure the family tradition carries on for years to come.
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.
