Description:

Pears are grown in moderate climates around the world. Pears are members of the rose family and related to the apple and the quince. Pears generally have a large round bottom that tapers towards the top. Depending on the variety, of which there are thousands, their paper-thin skins can either be yellow, green, brown, red or a combination of these colors. Sweet, with a soft, mild yet somewhat grainy texture, Pears have a white to cream-colored flesh. Pears are a healthy source of phosphorus and Vitamin A.

Ingredient Statement:

Dried Pears are mechanically dried.

Dried Pears with their mild flavor are an exceptional compliment to cheesecake, pies, pudding, breads, salads, salsas, and sauces. Toss with shrimp and sugar peas for a tasty stir-fry! Pears can also be used in jellies and jams, usually in combination with other fruits or berries.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:
