Pear, Bosc 2LB
Bosc pears are a well-known summer pear
They should be kept at room temperature until ripe and will keep up to an additional 2 weeks when stored in the refrigerator.
Bosc pears are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as broiling, baking, poaching, and drying. They can be consumed fresh, out-of-hand at room temperature or can be sliced and dipped in dark chocolate for a sweet treat. They can also be sliced for green leafy salads or displayed on cheese boards. A common misconception is that Bosc pears must be peeled or cooked before being consumed, which is neither true nor necessary. Bosc pears stand up to cooking and retain their shape, making them ideal for tarts, pies, popovers, glazing, and poaching. They can also be halved, grilled and topped with gorgonzola cheese and chopped walnuts, layered in sandwiches and on pizza, mixed into oatmeal, pureed into soup, or sliced into pancakes. Bosc pears compliment pesto, browned butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, walnut, hazelnut, mint, chocolate, gorgonzola, burrata, goat cheese, honey, red onions, butternut squash, dates, garlic, chicken, and pork.
Pears offer a good source of vitamin C, folate and dietary fiber. One medium-sized pear has less than 100 calories. Most of the vitamin C content is in the skin of the fruit, so pears should be eaten unpeeled. Providing some potassium and iron, pears contain pectin, a soluble fiber that helps control cholesterol levels.
