Pears Packham (ea)
Packham pears are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as baking or poaching. They can be served fresh, out-of-hand as a snack, sliced and mixed into leafy green salads; tossed in fruit or pasta salad; layered on cheese boards with nuts and other fruit; blended into smoothies, or sliced over vanilla ice cream. They can also be poached in red wine, poached in butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon, or drizzled with honey and baked until caramelized. Packham pears compliment arugula, kale, cheeses such as brie, blue, gorgonzola, or parmesan, pork, walnuts, pine nuts, grapes, and white balsamic vinegar. They will keep 3-8 days when stored at room temperature and will keep for several weeks when stored in the refrigerator.
