Think of sweet summer days growing shorter as fall arrives. We hope when you do, thoughts of sweet and shapely Pears come to mind, ‘cause now’s the time to enjoy these golden fruits that we harvest at the end of summer. Pears can be simple or fancy, enjoyed as is or used in your favorite recipes. So tear open that bag of Bella Viva Orchards’ plump Pears and read on as you feed your palate and your body in a most wonderful way!
Because Pears have a good amount of dietary fiber in each serving, they’re your friend when it comes to digestive health, blood sugars and weight management. They also contain some vitamin C, potassium, iron, calcium and protein to boot. When you enjoy Dried Pears, you may help your body stave off heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure and diabetes (1). Because they’re sweeter than the average fruit, you’ll want to enjoy them, but with some levels of responsibility.
Start the day with Dried Pears in your muffins. Or tuck a couple of slices of Dried Pears into a grilled brie sandwich on brioche for a memorable lunch. Dress up a kale salad with a handful of chopped Dried Pears and our Walnuts. Company coming? Make a cheese tray, making sure to have some Fontina next to our Dried Pears. If it’s dessert you’re craving, surf the ‘net for a Dried Pear Cake recipe. These are just a few ideas, of course. Let us know how you like to enjoy these lovelies!
