Round fruit with yellow-green skins covered in russet patches.

Pears are full of fibre, pectin (helps lower cholestrol levels) & sodium. Sodium helps eliminate carbon dioxide waste from your lungs.
The sweet health snack.
Try poaching some peeled pears in a sweeter white wine such as pinot gris or riesling, along with a good amount of sugar, a cinnamon stick, some lemon or orange peel & a little honey, until the pears are tender... You might want to keep them whole, or slice them lengthways & scoop out the cores.
