Regional and Seasonal Challenge To Use Pears
The regional and seasonal challenge is based on produce that is in season in the Southern Hemisphere. It was inspired by the volcanic ash disruption to flights in 2010. One of my first aims is to use produce that is in season, and farmed locally. I choose these food items over organic. The bonus to me is if I can find organic produce that is locally farmed.
The challenge for this week is to use pears. There is no end date to the challenge as this is about challenging yourself to make use of a regional and seasonal product, hopefully in a way you have not done so before.
If you decide to take part in my weekly challenge, please link back to my blog in your post and leave me a comment to let me know you have done so. I will do a weekly round up of all posts.
Pears are not Dave’s favourite fruit. I love them raw and they must be crunchy. Dave however will eat them if they are poached. I like to poach them in red wine with spices.
