The British season is in full swing and our pears are rolling in from a number of organic orchards, giving us a fantastic range of varieties try. Paul and Sara Ward, who've four and a half acres of orchards and wild flower meadows, provide the majority of our pears at the moment. 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 to farm shops and box schemes like ours.
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.
