Sweet, aromatic, refreshing

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

One of the most commonly grown varieties in New Zealand.

Pears are full of fibre, pectin (helps lower cholesterol 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.

Pears provide a very good source of fiber & are also a good source of vitamin B2, C, E, copper, & potassium
