Eat Fresh and Stay Healthy

Tasty News for September, 2017

Pears are still going strong: sweet and juicy and readily available in Bay Area stores. Pears may be either crunchy or soft, depending upon the variety, and you can expect to find this same quality through December for most varieties, with a few lasting until February. A particular favorite of Pete's that is in the stores right now is the Comice pear - juicy, sweet, and ready to eat. Another pear treat you might enjoy is the Bosc baked pear: Bake until soft with a little wine drizzled over it. Yum! Also check out the d'Angou pear, which used to be available in stores only in its green (inedible) state, but now is pre-conditioned (ripened) before arriving in stores.
