When you think about autumn produce, do pears come to mind? You’ll find pears at your local supermarket during the fall months. In the off season, canned pears work just as well. They are a very versatile fruit and work in many types of recipes. Try them with grilled cheese, as a sweet addition to a salad, salsa, or soup, or in place of apples. Check out the top ten ways to enjoy pears from fruitsandveggies.org. Find recipes at the bottom of this blog post.
If you’re in the mood for something sweet with a little twist, try Pineapple Pear Salsa
Eat it as a traditional salsa, on top of grilled chicken or a bed of rice, or rolled up in a wrap. Enjoy!
