Regional and Seasonal Challenge To Use Pears
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.

What a great seasonal challenge. I’m sure you’ll have lots of participants. I’m in the hemisphere, but will try to come up with something in the next few weekes. Have a great day. Blessings…Mary
that would be wonderful Mary! Enjoy the rest of your weekend 🙂
Happy Mother’s Day xxx
What a great idea! I’m SO in favour of seasonal. Unfortunately I’d be going against all my principles to join you as pears won’t be in season for another 5 months… 🙁 BUT we’ve got strawberries and the first cherries already so I can’t complain. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
I would swap the pears for cherries anytime! We enjoyed the beautiful strawberries in France 🙂
Crossing fingers I can get hold of some pears. I was going to do my Moms pears in red wine then you got me feeling all guilty with the “hopefully in a way you have not done so before”. Hope to come up with something yummy.
Don’t feel guilty – I have never poached pears in red wine before so would love to see your recipe 🙂
