Pear, D 'Anjou EACH

$1.49

Anjou pears are known for their subtly sweet flavor 

Anjou pears are medium in size, short, squat, and egg-shaped with a wide base that gradually tapers to a rounded top with a thick, dark-brown stem. The skin is bright green, smooth, firm, and is covered in lenticels or pores and some rose blush on the side most exposed to the sun. The flesh is white to cream-colored, dense, and buttery with a slightly gritty texture. When ripe, Anjou pears are juicy and soft with subtle, sweet flavors and notes of lemon and lime.
Various Growers, Cawston BC (Certified Organic)

 They should be kept at room temperature until ripe and will keep up to an additional 2 weeks when stored in the refrigerator. They ripen from the inside out and the only way to ensure ripeness is to gently press on the neck of the fruit to feel if the fruit is ready for consumption. 

Anjou pears are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as poaching, baking, grilling, and roasting. They can be consumed fresh, out-of-hand or sliced and mixed with green salads, layered in sandwiches, wraps, and grilled cheese, used as a topping on pizza, or blended into smoothies and soups. They can also be used in pasta, displayed on cheese plates, or served with stuffed pork tenderloin and an Anjou pear reduction. Anjou pears hold up well to baking and can be used in pies and tarts, poaching, or made into sauces and purees. Anjou pears compliment meats such as prosciutto, pork, and beef, wasabi, butter lettuce, arugula, fennel, radicchio, mushrooms, radish sprouts, carrots, apple, fig preserves, red onion, cheeses such as mozzarella, cambozola, brie, and camembert, Greek yogurt, quinoa, pecans, sesame seeds, cinnamon, ginger powder, and balsamic dressing. 

Anjou pears contain vitamin C, calcium, and dietary fiber.
