Pantry staples such as Pacific Northwest canned pears can be used in any dish to add subtle sweetness with no measuring, peeling, dicing or slicing required. Always ripe and ready, canned pears can be found year-round at the supermarket.
The best part of using canned fruits like pears is that they retain their nutrients throughout the canning process, making them an easy and healthy way to get part of the recommended five fruits and veggies a day. Plus, canned pears contain zero fat or cholesterol and are a good source of friendly carbohydrates, potassium and fiber.
Picadillo Pear Ole is a tasty example of the kind of flavor pears can add to family favorites.
