|We have many 'Luscious' European pears (foreground) and some 'Shinko' Asian pears (background) harvested and ready for sale, now till late Sept. or early Oct.|
|Bill's spiced pear compote tastes great on waffles, with a little maple syrup.|
|'Shinko' Asian pears (foreground) are great for fresh eating and salads, while 'Luscious' European pears (background) are wonderful for cooking & baking as well as fresh eating.|
Both types of pears keep well for 5 to 6 weeks in a refrigerator. Take European pears out a couple days before you want to eat them, or a day before you want to cook with them, and set them on the counter to soften and turn light yellow. Asian pears can be eaten right out of the fridge.
We're still open our summer hours through tomorrow, Aug. 31. From Sept. 1 to Nov. 31, we're open our fall hours: Mon. to Sat. 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sun. 1-6 p.m. I'm out harvesting pears most of the day, so phone ahead 620-597-2450 to let me know when you're coming, or ring the bell on the sales building to let me know when you're here.
