Get More Pears in Your Life

January 21, 2016


Pears are one of the most popular fruits in the world! They are a great source of fiber and a good source of vitamin C.  Plus, they're a great snack with only 100 calories per serving.


When shopping for pears, look for a pear that is firm. The pear should have a smooth skin that is free of bruises or mold. The color of good pears may not be uniform as some may have brown-speckled patches on the skin, this is a normal.  

And what’s even better about pears?  You can use them for recipes for every single meal of the day!
